K-Gr 5-The photos stand alone in this textless mathematics book. Four small, labeled diagrams on the back of the title page define the shapes. After that, readers are led on a treasure hunt for those shapes through 21 crisp, colorful pictures. A display of teddy bears in clown hats, a basket of baseballs, a breathtaking castle, and sculptured hedges typify the broad-ranging subject matter. Math teachers approaching solid geometry will find this to be a useful resource. Children will simply enjoy identifying the plethora of shapes to be found out in the world if one only takes the time to look.-Ellen Heath, Orchard School, Ridgewood, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
