50 Fantastic Ideas for Exploring Shape and Pattern

by Alison Hutchison (Featherstone, £10.99)

‘There is a wonderfully rich array of shapes to explore …yet in the early years we often narrow this to asking children to recall the names of some basic shapes using uninteresting materials’. This book aims to counteract such unimaginative practice, organised into sections on 2d, 3d, symmetry, shape and pattern in the wider world etc with an array of activites from exploring spiders webs to making stamps, sculpture and sorting socks.
