a diamond

ten circles

Each magnificent painting in this book has a different shape for you to find âe" some are easy, but some are difficult. And when you have found them all, there are lots of other interesting things to spot.

Lucy Micklethwait has selected a wonderful range of fine art by painters including Escher, Warhol, Matisse and Magritte. With a gloriously reproduced piece of art on each spread, this title is the ultimate picture-puzzle challenge for children, making art accessible and fun.

This book is perfect for any preschooler learning about shapes. Both my 2 and 4 year olds had lots of fun finding all the different shapes included in the artworks. All pictures are appropriate for all ages.
