If your chil­dren weren’t ex­cited about ge­om­e­try be­fore, they will be af­ter ex­pe­ri­enc­ing Sally Fawcett’s What Could it Be? Chal­leng­ing young minds to think out­side the box or square, art, na­ture, math, and cre­ative think­ing all con­verge as a spi­der­web be­comes a hexagon and the tip of a wooden spoon, cov­ered in choco­late and ready to lick, be­comes an oval. Start­ing with ba­sic shape out­lines, then pro­gress­ing to more in­volved scenes, chil­dren are asked to find a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent col­ored shapes within a given set­ting, rang­ing from a cozy kitchen to snow-cov­ered moun­tains and the sunny sea­side. Lit­tle fin­gers will be itch­ing to turn rec­tan­gles into rocket ships as chil­dren view the world around them in a whole new light.
