Have you learned your colors and shapes? Now it's time to learn patterns!

Have you learned your colors and shapes? Now it's time to learn patterns!

Stripes, polka dots, plaid, chevron, and more are featured in this first-ever patterns concept book that provides readers with the vocabulary to name what they see in the world around them. The ten most prevalent patterns are presented first as a single element (This is a circle ...), then as a pattern (... a lot of circles make polka dots!). Conceived by educators and illustrated in vivid candy-colored hues, this pitch-perfect introduction to patterns will engage the artistic, mathematical, and linguistic parts of every young child's mind.
