A giraffe’s neck, a duck’s eyes, bubbles—can you spot the pattern? Barroux’s crackling-with-creativity activity book offers a hands-on way to recognize, copy, and create patterns. Kids will be firing on all cylinders as they fill in simple patterns like colored dots, then progress to more complicated and silly-smart patterns such as stripes—on a fox! Is pattern recognition an important developmental skill that contributes to mathematical cognition and problemsolving? It is! But it is much more fun to absorb when drawing an argyle-patterned scarf on a spotted giraffe, or a tangle of swirly snakes! Barroux supplies just the right amount of instruction and creative freedom for beginning artists, and kids who just want to see how a triangle, a curl, and circle can become—hey, a mouse!
