Kids love interactive books and Wild About Shapes is no exception. The anticipation of turning each page, guessing what animals takes shape also serves as a fun tool to teach color theory and how a shape can quickly morph into something entirely different, something instantly alive.

Color theory is a great gateway into art exploration for toddlers and preschool age kids. There truly is an alchemy at work during this process. Children are suddenly transformed into little wizards, bristly wands in hand, whipping up something of their imaginations.  Flex a child's creativity by prompting them to create a color of their own!
