The three most basic shapes — squares, triangles and circles — are all around us, from the natural world to the one we’ve engineered. Full of fascinating facts about these shapes and their 3-D counterparts, Shapes in Math, Science and Nature introduces young readers to the basics of geometry and reveals its applications at home, school and everywhere in between. Puzzles and activities add to the fun factor.   

Catherine Sheldrick Ross is the author of Circles, Squares and Triangles, as well as several reference books for adults. She holds a PhD in English and a Masters in Library and Information Science. She lives in London, Ontario.

Bill Slavin is an award-winning illustrator known for the best-selling Stanley series, Elephants Never Forget graphic novel series and more. He lives in Millbrook, Ontario.

This book has been written for junior and intermediate students and is an excellent resource for math and science teachers ... I would strongly recommend this book to teachers who are looking to enrich their math and science programs or to parents who wish to show their children how much fun math and science can be.
