My First Book Of 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-coloured hues, this pitch-perfect introduction to patterns will engage the artistic, mathematical, and linguistic parts of every young child’s mind. The first ever patterns concept book for children utilises a Montessori approach to introducing new content so that the child is not only memorising labels but understanding how patterns are created. The stylish, candy-coloured art adds appeal and differentiation between patterns,and the substantial gifty format appeals to both children and adults alike.
