Wild About Shapes by Jeremie Fischer (Flying Eye Books, £12.99)

An intriguing book that urges the reader to look closer, Wild About Shapes is an innovatively designed educational book. Featuring wild animals, shapes and eye-catching colours, this is an incredibly imaginative ring-bound book with a very witty title.

Each page alternates between bold colours on thick white paper pages with sheets of clear plastic acetate with similar bright psychedelic forms. These both combine, along with sparse mysterious instructions, to reveal animal silhouettes, taking the reader on a wonderful page-turning journey through the animal kingdom. The hidden image conceit means that readers of all ages will find this book a challenge, but it’s an especially great opportunity for parents to question and engage young children during story time.

Hi. "Wild About Shapes" is a wonderful picture book that also serves as a seek and find. With each turn of the page you are given an abstract painting, but when you turn over the plastic page you discover a whole new picture! I have ordered about this college paper for my student research. This is a great book for children who are learning to identify animals and can follow along with a book of few words. I would recommend this book for children who are toddlers through kindergarten.

An interesting dialogue is price comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic however usually individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers. buyhydrocodonerx.com
