Quote of the day:
"Hungry man, reach for the book: it is a weapon."
Title: Zebra Stripes Go Head To Toe
Authors: Sheryl and Simon Shapiro
This little book shows children
That squares are here and there.
And if they keep an eye out
then stripes are everywhere.
This book is fun and full of real photos and simple rhyming text that explores the concept of squares, stripes and lines. It is a great introduction to the concept of shapes for very young children. It explains that a square has four sides that are the same and they have four corners. The photos show a cookie (with one corner bitten off) and a square checkerboard that kids are happily playing with. The squares morph into the cube concept. The cube shape is visually enhanced showing cubes of cheese and oversized boxes to play in, familiar things that kids can relate to. Lines are pointed out next with bright, real photographs of zebras, spinning tops and cool striped socks, just to name a few. My all time favourite page is the one showing the piggy snouts sticking out between the slats of a fence. It is too cute. The book challenges your child to look around them and find these shapes in the world that they inhabit.
