Now Available On Amazon, 'What Animal Am I?' Kid's Book Teaches Reading, Counting and Shapes
The sixth title in the Funky Dreamer Storytime children's book library by author Greg Wachs, 'What Animal Am I?' introduces geometry and biology to pre-schoolers, provides counting and naming exercises
"My newest book features illustrations created using geometric forms in an artistic technique called 'Low Poly.' This book bring shapes to the forefront while kids enjoy the rhyming clues, then guess what animal they describe and learn about each animal's lifestyle and habitat," Wachs explained. "The book is a series of riddles accompanied by shapes for kids to count and name. Then, on the next page, the animal's face appears, built out of this variety of geometric shapes."
The goal of What Animal Am I? is to engage young children in the written word and introduce mathematics, geometry, and ecology in an entertaining way.
"Building children's geometric imagination is an important part of exploring spatial relations and experiencing mathematics,"
The unique geometric drawings – including a colorful tiger, giraffe, wolf, snow leopard, panda, hummingbird, fox, and dog, accompanied by vibrant flowers, leaves, grasses, and bamboo – are the creation of illustrator Yana Kossova. Since childhood, Kossova spent all of her free time in front of an easel, and could not imagine life without drawing. Based in Israel, Kossova works in freehand, as well as various digital methods, including the "Low Poly" technique used in What Animal Am I?
What Animal Am I? is the second title in Wachs' Funky Dreamer Storytime library focused on introducing young children ages 2 to 5 to reading using cute animals and engaging rhyme. What Do Giraffes Eat? is available in English, Spanish and Tagalog editions.
