Go Wild with... Designs

Neal Layton. Pavilion (IPG/Trafalgar Sq., dist.), $5.99 (12p) ISBN 978-1-84365-176-5

Layton uses animals to introduce 12 basic shapes and patterns in this pared-down board book. A trio of starfish demonstrates (you guessed it) stars, a snail’s shell provides a spiral, stripes belong to a zebra, and a fish’s patchwork scales consist of multicolored diamonds. While the only text is the name of each pattern, the book works just as well as an animal guessing game, and Layton’s bold art will keep kids’ attention. Simultaneously available: Go Wild with... Noises and Go Wild with... Opposites. Up to age 3. (June)
