The Wing on a Flea: A Book about Shapes by Ed EmberleyChildren are fascinated by shapes and colors and the world is full of amazing shapes, colors, and sizes. Look and you can see that a wing on a flea is a triangle, a ruler is a rectangle, and the wheels on a truck are circles. Using vivid illustrations and a simple rhyming text, noted author/illustrator Ed Emberley introduces the concept of shapes and sizes to curious young children as he suggests they view the world in a new and exciting way.
This lovely book of line drawings about basic shapes and what they could become foreshadowed his later, well-known how-to-draw series of books. AMMO is delighted to reissue this classic Emberley title to a new generation of children. Read more Read less.

The wing on a flea : a book about shapes, by Ed Emberley
Young children will be introduced to shapes and sizes while imagining all of the different things the shapes could be. This lesson connects to Jeffrey Gibson's Freedom with the idea that we make choices about what we carry and why. Young learners will explore the layers of geometric shapes in Jeffrey Gibson's Freedom , and explore a variety of types of materials to make a multi-layered art work of their own. This routine can be done daily or weekly and takes about minutes. It will encourage children to practice conversation, questioning, and close looking. Karen Kitchel's creative process required close looking and attention to detail.
