There’s no need to expatiate on this book: it is quite simply beautifully made. The panel liked the unusual form: tangrams with a story. This is an activity book that comes complete with set of sturdy tangram cards cunningly ensconced in the back of the book, inviting active participation while reading the story or having it read aloud. The panel had seldom seen an educational book presented so invitingly.
