About the Author:

Ed Emberley is a Caldecott award-winning children’s book illustrator and writer who has been creating original books since the 1960s. He has written and illustrated more than 100 books, including his beloved how-to-draw books for kids. These simple and straightforward books, originally published in the 1970s and 1980s, have encouraged a generation of kids to take the drawing process step-by-step. Contemporary working artists today often cite Ed Emberley as a beloved early inspiration in their development as artists. By encouraging kids to draw using just a few simple shapes, Emberley has made drawing and creating accessible to everyone.

From School Library Journal:

reS-K-A newly illustrated version of a 1961 edition. A rhyming text points out some of the places in which basic geometric shapes can be found in life situations. For example, "A circle could be a little green pea,/or eyes in the dark, if you'll just look and see." Although circles, triangles, and rectangles are addressed separately in the text, most of the illustrations are composed of a combination of these shapes. The train with circular wheels pulls a rectangular circus wagon flying triangular flags, etc. The shapes are illustrated with flat, solid colors on a black background, giving a childlike, cheerful appearance appropriate for introducing the concept. Readers who have developed affection for the whimsical, humorous line drawings found in the original may be disconcerted by the new style. However, libraries that do not have the older edition and those looking for a simple, straightforward approach to basic shapes will find this one an attractive option.
