9781845076955: First Shapes in Buildings

This innovative shapes book features 12 structures from around the world. Each double-page spread is devoted to one shape, and both two- and three-dimensional shapes (e.g. circle, square, rectangle, cube, pyramid, and cylinder), are included. Each shape is illustrated in its simple geometric form on one side of the spread, while opposite is a full-color photograph of a structure that incorporates that shape. Simple text on each spread explains an aspect of the structure and invites children to imagine what it might be like to be in it or what the people who built it felt about it. This inventive and intriguing approach not only reinforces the learning of everyday shapes — it also inspires children to appreciate some of the world's great structures and the everyday environment around them.

About the Author:

Penny Ann Lane has worked for many years as a Montessori teacher. She comes from a family of architects and she is committed to showing how beautiful architecture can be. This is her first book for Frances Lincoln. Penny lives in Fyfield in Oxfordshire.

Review:

The passion of the author for architecture shines through in this photo-illustrated text. Readers are encouraged to dwell on thought provoking questions after looking at the shapes, which could lead to sustained shared thinking.
