Early in life, children learn to recognize colors and shapes in their environment with the help of books, educational programming, and family members.
But what about learning shapes from none other than Josef Albers, one of the pioneers of 20th-century modernism?
You can do just that by picking up the new book Squares and Other Shapes with Josef Albers from Phaidon Children’s Books. Recommended for ages 1-3, this beautiful board book uses the shapes and color theory of Albers to introduce squares to your child, then progress to other shapes as well.
Each page features one work of art with engaging accompanying text to read aloud with your child, for example, “Lots of little circles” or “Sunny-side up Squares!”
Squares and Other Shapes with Josef Albers was created in collaboration with the Josef and Anti Albers Foundation, and is part of a larger series from Phaidon called “First Concepts with Fine Artists.” Also in this series is “Blue and Other Colors with Henri Matisse”, and you can read our review here.
