School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-This is a delightful book to enhance understanding of the basic geometric shapes; its design is attractively whimsical without sacrificing practicality. With the help of well-drawn, colorful, cartoonlike illustrations, the projects are easy to produce. Children will enjoy the crafting process as well as the finished articles, which include puppets, jewelry, games, and hanging objects. There are five crafts, with suggested variations, per shape; each project is presented on a spread and has a picture of the finished work, sometimes with a child holding it, and an illustrated materials list. The supplies are common household items or easily obtainable; the numbered directions are easy to follow. Use this basic craft book as an introduction to some of the slightly more sophisticated activities in Mary Tomczyk's Shapes, Sizes & More Surprises! (Williamson, 1995), and pair it with Tana Hoban's Shapes, Shapes, Shapes (Greenwillow, 1986) for a view of shapes in the real world.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
