Description - Watch This!: a book about making shapes by Jane Godwin
Can you make a circle with your arms?
Or a triangle with your fingers?
If we work together, we can make a rectangle, or even a pyramid.
We can make lots and lots of shapes - just watch this! A bold and playful celebration of movement, energy, pattern, colour and shape!
'Watch This! is a groundbreaking modern photographic picture book about children using their bodies to make sense of shapes in a playful way, form three high-acclaimed Australian creators. A bold and playful celebration of movement, energy, pattern, color and shape!'
'This Australian concept book involves the whole body. Twelve children bend, twist, and join limbs to form various shapes, all photographed against large, patterned pops of colour ... Walker expertly photographs from various angles, though the overhead shots are by far the most clever and amusing. The shapes start to get more complicated (a star, a diamond) until interpretations become a bit looser and more creative. Children standing side by side holding hands are a wavy line, and two others hiding behind Ari with arms straight out becomes a six-armed 'Ari-tangle.' Orpin's backgrounds and frames often echo the shapes in case extra reinforcement is needed. The children are racially diverse with names hinting at ethnic diversity as well, and playful touches (tongues out, gleeful smiles) expertly capture childlike exuberance. A treat for all learners, kinaesthetic or otherwise.'
