Synopses & Reviews
Filled with planes, trains, and automobiles, AWAY WE GO! teaches basic shapes through bold designs and inventive die-cuts on every page.
Triangles become sailboats and hearts become airplanes as each spread reveals a different mode of transportation made from bright colors and geometric shapes. The creative challenge of this board book is to find the vehicles in the shapes and to find the shapes in the vehicles.
With special search-and-find shape-based games throughout, children will love learning and searching for basic shapes in this clever collection of things that go!
"Urban demonstrates the remarkable versatility of shapes, using them to create an array of vehicles. On each brightly colored spread, a question addresses readers directly. 'Do you see a square?' opens the book, as a geometric truck and train appear below. Subsequent pages ask children to find triangles, hearts, stars, octagons, and more plenty of each can be found within each vehicle as die cuts form each shape mentioned. With parental help, readers will finish this book with a good sense of both shapes and methods of transportation. Up to age 3. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
