is a book of magnificent paper sculptures - the stars pages open up like an amazing fireworks display that garners admiring
from young and old readers alike.
here are spreads for a variety of shapes - square, circle, star, triangle, and rectangle - that pop up in remarkable paper sculptures. In addition to admiring the spectacle, readers are encouraged to quantify what they're looking at. For example, on the
layout, they're informed that there are 7 different star shapes and asked how many have each of 4-10 points, how many points touch the pages, which star contains the most star shapes etc..
his is one of those intriguing, mind-boggling books that adults and kids can enjoy exploring together - admiring the layouts, answering the questions, and comparing results.
