New Synopsis Shaped Animals

Shaped Animals is a great way to enjoy learning and remembering maths and shapes through storytelling.

Meet Triangle Tiger who goes on the search to find other shaped animal friends to join his party. On this adventure, you will get to learn about the four main basic shapes through the animals explaining and introducing themselves.

New Review

Meet Triangle Tiger, with his three points, sides and angles. He has just moved to the jungle and is throwing a party to meet some other jungle animals, as he would like to make some new friends.

So off he goes in search of them. On his journey he meets Square Snake, Circle Caterpillar, and Rectangle Rhino. Together they become firm friends, and all have an enjoyable time at the party.

This book is a lot of fun. It has a great educational plot, brightly coloured, full size illustrations, and different shaped animals, what more could a young child want from a beginners maths book.

The aim of the book is to reinforce children’s knowledge of the four basic shapes, by creating an amusing way for the kids to remember what they each look like. At the bottom of the page on which each different animal is introduced, there is also a box explaining harder mathematical words, such as parallel, right angle, circumference.

Shaped Animals is a lovely sweet story that will capture children’s imaginations. It would work well as a solo, as well as a class read.
