Squares by Sophie Fatus

Squares are everywhere! Diamond shapes, checkers, and plaids throw a pattern of squares on people, animals, and objects from the world around us. Harlequins, box turtles, tartan slippers, pineapples-all are covered with criss-crosses, ridges, and squares of all sorts! The Silly Shapes series for children shows how shapes and patterns appear wherever you look. The bright, beautiful illustrations will encourage toddlers and preschoolers to look at the world around them with new curiosity, while the simple text is perfect for children who have just started to learn their ABC's!
