Cubes, Cones, Cylinders & Spheres

by Tana Hoban

Published by Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins, 2000
24 pages
ISBN: 0-688-15325-9

Ages 5 - 9

Wooden alphabet blocks. A Halloween witches' hat. A ship's smokestacks. A bubble from a child's wand. This wordless book depicts the four geometric shapes in the title with a series of full-page, full-color photographs featuring mostly everyday objects and activities. The fun comes not just in identifying the shapes but also in discovering what some of the photographs reveal with a bit of study. Is the top of that light pole with the sphere-shaped bulbs a cylinder? How many of the shapes can you find in that photograph of the castle?
