Shapes are generally our first encounter with math. Geometry skills are learned from an early age, and readers build upon those first geometry lessons with topics like describing objects using the names of shapes, identifying both two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes, and composing shapes. Readers are able to explore these essential concepts independently through easy-to-follow text and colorful images of both new and familiar shapes. By exploring a boat, readers practice identifying shapes of various orientations and sizes. Reflecting the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, this book addresses standard K.G.A.2. This book should be paired with "Finding Shapes at the Fair" (9781477719558) from the InfoMax Math Readers Program to provide the alternative point of view on the same topic.
