While some concept books are pretty basic and feature simple art work, others introduce children to slightly more complex ideas (words) and offer illustrations that even adults will gravitate to.

That's what Shapes purports to do. Besides the usual shapes, such as squares, diamonds, triangles and circles, your child will also find teardrops, parallelograms, rectangles and hexagons.

You'll note that rather than just one or two color examples of the shape, there is a full page of the featured shape that forms a pattern. This may demand a little more concentration but in the long run will probably keep the child coming back to page through the book for a longer period of time.

The basic shapes on each page are also of different sizes and the colors are varied, and complementary and the connect shades are easy on the eye.

All in all, this is a stylish concept book that works on a number of levels and is as visually pleasing as it is educational. Both parents and children will find this an engaging volume.
