9781616894726: What Can I Be?

Unearthed after nearly forty years, What Can I Be?, a stunning concept book written by Ann Rand and illustrated by Ingrid King, is sure to delight children with its superb graphics and vivid palette. Triangles, squares, circles, lines, and colors spring to life in various and creative formations as they ask, "What can I be?" A green triangle asks to become a tent, a kite, a Christmas tree, or the sail of a boat, or why not all of these things?

About the Author:

Ann Rand (1918–2007) trained as an architect at IIT, where she studied with Mies van der Rohe. She was the author of several children's books: Little 1, Sparkle and Spin, and I Know a Lot of Things.

Ingrid Fiksdahl King is an architect and painter. She is a coauthor, with Christopher Alexander, of A Pattern Language, first published in 1977 and still one of the most influential books on architecture and planning ever published. She is from Norway and now lives in Berkeley, CA.

Review:

“With simple, inviting words, Rand constructs a poetic game of possibility.... Wondrous.” —Brain Pickings

“A book all about possibility, imagination, and the wonders of the physical world.” —Kirkus Online

“After introducing a series of shapes and colors, Rand invites readers to consider their possibilities with the question, What can I be?, before providing some creative examples that encourage little ones to think in new directions.... Both author and illustrator are architects, and their sophisticated sense of space is evident in the book’s page design and individual pictures. The illustrations have a retro feel while still reflecting a child’s sensibility, including animals, toys, plants, and other items that are within a young reader’s frame of reference. A thought-provoking, riddle-like book with ample visual appeal.” —Booklist
