Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A senior editor at Progressive Architecture and an award-winning architectural photographer come together to present four colorful board books that introduce the built environment to preschoolers. Architecture Counts consists of numbers from 0-10 such as two brackets, three dormers, five arches and six ducts. Architecture Shapes explores shapes through the composition and arrangement of windows. Architecture Colors looks at the entire building as well as several details to suggest nine colors including a red barn, green roofs and a white church. Architecture Animals is an excursion into the deepest, wildest, architectural jungles around. Contains 14 animals in their native habitats--crawling across building facades, perched on top of a skyscraper or lounging at the ocean shore. Each full-color photograph is accompanied by a rhyme that provides hints of the animal's location or history.

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
The book shows basic shapes through line drawings and on the facing page different architectural elements of that shape, mainly photos of windows. My twins are 13 months old and they choose this book as one of their favorites. The photographs are crisp and reality based (no cartoons), the typeface is large and clear, and the shapes are bold and basic. The twins like it read to them as well as flipping the pages themselves. We may soon need another copy as it is getting a lot of use. I would recommend this book to any small child, beginning reader, or even a little older.

my son wants to be an architect. i thought this book would be perfect. my son knows his shapes, he's four. this book is not challenging at all and didn't hold his attention. great cover, after that another shape book just using buildings. i have higher expectations. if your kid wants to be an architect, i recommend ROBERTO THE INSECT ARCHITECT and THE THREE LITTLE PIGS: AN ARCHITECTURAL TALE.
