The Land of Shapes

The Land of Shapes is publishing a series of picture / read-aloud books for young readers that incorporate basic geometric shapes and concepts with stories that explore life themes.

The Adventures of Symmy the Square and the Land of Shapes is the first book.

This book was written with the 2000-2004 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics geometry standards in mind. Among many other recommendations, the NCTM advises that in prekindergarten through grade 2 students should recognize and create shapes that have symmetry. In grades 3-5, students should also develop vocabulary to describe the attributes of shapes, explore congruency and similarity, test conjectures about geometric properties and relationships and apply them to other disciplines and to problems that arise in everyday life.

Edwin Roman is the artist who brought the Land of Shapes to life. Edwin was influenced by his studies in art history and the work of Charles Schultz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip. As you follow Symmy on this adventure, you will notice that each town in the Land of Shapes has its own distinctive topography and architecture.

A lot of love, sweat and tears went into producing this first book. Thank you for visiting our store.
