The daredevil Wing Wing Brothers explain 3 different CCSS geometry concepts: relative positions, composing simple shapes to form larger shapes, and partitioning rectangles into two and four equal shapes. Learning geometry is made fun through the humorous antics of the Wing Wing Brothers and the comic book style illustrations. Readers will definitely be left imagining what other crazy stunts the brothers will attempt. ( )

This book is cute and humorous, and would be most appropriate for children in about the first grade. I'm sure that very young children would really enjoy this silly book, and it could help to reinforce the basic geometric principles that students learn about between kindergarten and second grade, such as what a trapezoid looks like or what "half" is. That being said, I didn't find this book to be exceptionally instructional. The book is split into three parts, each of which explores a different concept. I think it might have been better, however, if the author had instead devoted the entire book to a single concept and explored that concept more thoroughly. The book as it is is okay, but I'm not sure how much children would learn from it. ( )

This book goes over basic geometric principles all while making learning them fun with the story of the Wing Wing brothers. The concepts discussed are relative positioning, using simple shapes to make larger shapes, and even going over fractions by way of parting a rectangle into halves and then quarters. ( )

"The Wing Wing Brothers Geometry Palooza!" Is an adorable book that is illustrated like a comic book. In the first part of the story, the brothers teach the readers locations. The brothers fly below, above, through, and under the Circle of Fire. Next, the brothers teach shapes and how those shapes can form other shapes. For example, two triangles can form a square, or one rectangle and two triangles form a trapezoid. Lastly, the book teaches cutting a rectangle into four equal parts. It shows how to cut one-half and then cuts the rectangle into fourths. At the end of the book, the authors states The Common Core State Standard that this book applies to. Overall, this story is entertaining and lets parents or teachers interact with children by looking at the images and solving the problems. This is a book that I feel children will enjoy and also learn a lot from! ( )

The characters in this alliterative text engage in amazing circus feats, which in turn describe relative position (e.g. in front of, above, behind) compare simple shapes to form larger shapes (e.g. parallelograms and trapezoids), and partition rectangles into equal shares. This whimsical story will have young readers wondering what happens next: Will Walter be in one piece after the box he is in is sawed into quarters? The text enables students and teacher to engage lots of mathematical conversations, employ math vocabulary and make observations. ( )
