Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Barroux's crackling-with-creativity activity book offers a hands-on way to recognize, copy, and create patterns. Kids will be firing on all cylinders as they fill in simple patterns like colored dots, then progress to more complicated and silly-smart patterns such as stripes - on a fox! Is pattern recognition an important developmental skill that contributes to mathematical cognition and problem-solving? It is! But it is much more fun to absorb when drawing an argyle-patterned scarf on a spotted giraffe, or a tangle of swirly snakes! Barroux supplies just the right amount of instruction and creative freedom for beginning artists, and kids who just want to see how a triangle, a curl, and a circle can become - hey, a mouse!

Review:

"Barroux explores patterns and repetition, and this coloring book's primary-color palette, loose watercolor style, and abundant white space provide an open canvas for doodling and experimentation. Dots, stripes, and shapes like triangles and rectangles are featured (and repeated) throughout: children can use spirals to make curly pigs' tails or curly hair on a child's head; short dashes can put fur on an animal, make water drip from a watering can, and signal light emanating from a dozen light bulbs that fill a spread. The repetition of basic shapes and patterns smartly emphasizes how familiar shapes can be used in several ways with very different results. Ages 4 — 8. Agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words."

About the Author

Does Barroux's creativity have a pattern? Well, you will always find wit, originality, a sophisticated color palette--and plenty of surprises!--in whatever he dreams up. Barroux studied photography, art, sculpture, and architecture at the famed École Estienne and École Boule, then worked as an art director in Paris and Montreal. He eventually returned to Paris and now creates his art in a fantastical studio in an abandoned building he shares with other artists.
