    This is an introduction to drawing and shapes.  You learn what shapes are named and what they can do and how to draw them.

    Flying Eye Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It is being published in May so you can grab a copy then.

    The illustrations are simple and basic and in bright primary colors.  In poetic words, the author uses color and text to illustrate the basic shapes.  She talks of ploughed fields stretching across the countryside.  How slanted lines can be a slide or skis or a seesaw.

    This is a good educational resource that makes it easy to learn things without flash cards.  (Yes, I'm old enough to remember flash cards.)  This mode would have been much more fun. 

    A child will begin to recognize colors and shapes in the world around them once they learned to look at them with the right "eye".  Maybe you could sit together and talk about the shapes you see, too...
