I Spy Shapes In Art

by Lucy Micklethwait

Greenwillow 2006

Ages: 5 to 7

Topic: Counting Books

Each of the 14 magnificent paintings in this book have a different shape for you to find- circles, rectangles, triangles, cubes, cylinders, spheres, etc. What a glorious way to introduce artists like Georgia O'Keeffe, Henry Matisse, and M.C. Escher.

This book could also be used with beginning geometry classes and ESL students learning English. There is a glossary in the back of the book in case you missed a shape!
