A die-cut board book introduces triangles to the very young through a variety of everyday objects.
Die-cut pages invite little ones to explore the possibilities of a triangle. What can a triangle be? Using bold colors and simple geometric images, Yonezu challenges children to guess those possibilities before revealing the answers at the turn of the page. So, what can a triangle be? It can be a roof or a hat. Flip it onto one of its points, and it could be a flag or a sail. Add two more, and it can be a crown or a tree. Add two dots and watch them become the eyes of a fox or a mouse. Two triangles could be two umbrellas or two carrots. A triangle could also be the beak of a goose or a piece of cheese. And three triangles can make the ears and snout on the face of a pig. The book not only appeals to the imagination, but it invites touch: little fingers will want to trace the triangular die cuts, and readers may even peek through as they search for more triangular shapes beyond the book.
A smart and engaging book that will encourage the imaginations of children, all while teaching them to recognize triangles. (Board book. 2-4)
