Review:
Children lucky enough to see and read this lively and instructive work will be way ahead of most parents. They will be able to rattle off the differences between an equilateral and a scalene triangle, or tell how to distinguish a parallelogram from a trapezoid. And all this heady knowledge can be painlessly acquired simply by using a number of pretzels, a slice of cheese, a piece of bread and a sheet of paper! This title is a page-turner, chock-full of informative fun. What’s more, by participating as they learn, children are likely to retain what information they acquire. This is beginning Geometry made easy. A winner.
