George, Bobby; George, June; Kim, Boyoun My First Book of Patterns The first and only patterns concept book on the market! Children are commonly taught to recognize colours and shapes from a very early age, so why not patterns? Stripes, polka dots, plaids, 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!). Each graphic, full-bleed pattern is followed up with a stylish illustration featuring the pattern applied to a full scene ( … a polka-dotted meal!). Conceived by educators, this pitch-perfect introduction to patterns will engage the artistic, mathematical, and linguistic parts of every young child’s mind.
