Shape Work

We couldn't be more pleased to announce Montessori: Shape Work, the third book in our series from Abrams Appleseed. Out in August, it's now available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

We've been dreaming about putting together a book to help children learn their shapes for many years, and we're so very pleased that Abrams Appleseed, and their incredible team, have given us this wonderful opportunity.

Shape Work takes the abstract concepts of geometric objects, and presents them in a fun, concrete, dynamic way. When learning shapes, Montessori students first develop an understanding of the spatial object, before learning their respective names.

Making direct links to the famous Montessori geometric cabinet (pictured above), this multi-faceted, interactive book will help your child learn their shapes. "Featured shapes include three triangles (equilateral, isosceles, right-angled); three rounds (circle, oval, ellipse); three parallelograms (square, rectangle, rhombus); and three polygons (pentagon, hexagon, octagon).
