Age 3 to 7

Color Zoo by Lois Ehlert

Publisher: HarperCollins
ISBN: 9780694010677

The bold colours and shapes in this book are layered up to make pictures of different animals. Every time a page is turned, one layer is removed to make a new animal. Within the layers are different shapes, some of which are mathematical and some of which are words we use in everyday life, including a square, a heart, a diamond and an octagon. Children can explore these shapes and can also see which other shapes they can spot hidden in the pictures.
