Other Editions of This Title:
Draw three dots on a piece of paper. Or maybe-- draw three dots on a slice of cheese. What happens when you connect the dots?
With bright, colorful illustrations and a simple, funny text, Shape Up! introduces triangles, quadrangles, and other polygons to young readers, encouraging them to play along, and learn everything there is to know about shapes.
Explaining basic geometric concepts and offering definitions for important vocabulary, this introduction to shapes, lines, and angles is to good to miss-- even if the jokes can be a little . . . cheesy.
Created by a respected children's nonfiction author and former math teacher, this is a perfect grounding in basic shapes-- and a lot of fun, too.
