The tangram, a puzzle that originated in China, is tremendously popular as an educational toy. The objective is to figure out how seven variously shaped pieces cut from a square can be rearranged to match the outlines of countless other shapes offered as puzzles. The process helps children develop their sense of space and shape as well as their thinking skills.

This book of tangram puzzles comes with a set of seven differently colored tans made of wood as well as a separate tangram-puzzle poster. The child studies the pictures in the book or on the poster and places tans on them in the appropriate combinations to match the outlined shapes. The challenges are ordered in five levels of difficulty, from simple shapes that require combining just two tans, to complex shapes that require all seven, making it possible for children of all ages from three on up—and their parents, too—to enjoy the challenge.

The set comes in a convenient box for easy cleanup when the playing is done.
