Identifying shapes is a fundamental part of a child's development. Most of the time, shapes are introduced strictly by their geometric properties. In this illustrated, conceptual board book, though, brightly colored shapes are associated with forms found in nature, creating connections between mathematical concepts and the world around us. Young readers will enjoy pointing out the shapes in this book—and all around!
