Synopsis

Shapes on the Seashore Band 02A/Red A by Frances Ridley

A boy and his mother go for a walk along the seashore and find all sorts of shapes. There's a starfish shaped like a star, a pebble that's an oval and a jellyfish that's a circle. A combination of fascinating photos and delightful artwork show the variety of shapes that can be found. * Red A/Band 2A books offer predictable text with familiar objects and actions, combined with simple story development. * Text type - A simple recount. * The shapes are repeated on pages 14 and 15 for children to recall and discuss. * This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery.

About the Author

Frances grew up with three younger brothers. She kept them in order by telling them stories and writing plays for them to perform (but they never turned up for rehearsals). Now she has two children of her own to boss around, called Marianne and George. They give her lots of ideas for books. Frances thinks that the best time to mull over ideas is when you are doing something completely different - like sleeping. She suggests you don't try this at school, though, as your teacher might not agree. Ali Teo was born in East Malaysia.She grew up in Wainuiomata and attended Wellington Polytechnic where she earned a Bachelor Degree in Design. She works as a freelance illustrator.
