Dinosaur Shapes

“Dinosaur Shapes introduces youngsters to five two-dimensional shapes (circle, triangle, square, rectangle and oval) plus six shapes that have three dimensions (sphere, pyramid, cube, prism, cone and cylinder). A closing page repeats the shapes and asks, “Can you remember the names of all these shapes?” To assist readers, the two types of shapes are separated and are also coloured differently. Each double-page spread is given over to a single shape, and varying numbers of that shape are found in the objects with which the children and/or dinosaurs are interacting. In each spread, the reader is asked to find a certain number of the target shape. For example, with the circle pages, readers are challenged with, “How many circles can you see on his bike?” The cone pages again find Billy riding his bike, this time through some traffic cones. The task for the reader is to identify the number of cones in the picture. (Trick question: One cone that may be overlooked is the ice-cream cone being eaten by the girl watching Billy.) Note that this book does not have an answer key. Younger readers should be able to deal with the two dimensional shapes, but they may have difficulty with the three dimensional shapes that are being rendered in a two-dimensional medium, especially if these children have not yet learned the conventions, such as shading, that are used in representing three dimensions.” --CM Magazine, 11/13
