Book: The Wings on a Flea

If you look and see
On the wings of a flea
Or anywhere
Says Ed Emberley

Observation’s the key
Because shapes will be
Wherever you look
If you look and see

Note: I find the 1961 version more visually accessible than the technicolor circus of the 2001 reissue. (In truth, the latter gave me a headache). The former has typical 1960’s black-and-white line drawings, with a spot of color highlighting the featured shape (triangle, square, etc). Check Alibris for ex-library copies of the 1961 edition.

Ed Emberley is a Caldecott winner and has written several first-rate instructional drawing books for kiddos.
