Description

With bright illustrations and clear, kid-friendly language, this book introduces one of the most basic geometric shapes to young readers. 

Formed of three sides and three angles, triangles are everywhere—especially on the pages of this book, where two kids and their robot friend assemble a brand-new bot from different types and sizes of triangles.  

This title defines important geometry vocabulary in simple, accessible terms, reinforcing the text with illustrations of the different types of and relationships between triangles. Activities on identifying, measuring, and comparing angles help readers understand these important ideas. 

Drawing on his years of experience teaching math, David Adler's text thoroughly introduces fundamental mathematical concepts.  Colorfully illustrated by nonfiction veteran Ed Miller, this book is perfect for readers just beginning to study shapes and geometry.

About the Author

David A. Adler taught math for eight years. In that time he learned many things from his students -- including the fact that they thought fractions were hard. So he decided to prove that learning how to work with fractions is not only easy, but also fun! He lives with his family on Long Island.

Edward Miller loves to make concepts clear to kids and has demonstrated that in his previous nonfiction books. School Library Journal praised his Alphabeep: A Zipping, Zooming ABC by Debora Pearson as "stunningly illustrated." He lives in New York City.
