The Shape of the World (2017; Simon and Schuster) serves as the perfect introduction to Frank Lloyd Wright. The illustrated children’s story begins with the famous architect as a baby and carries through to his lasting legacy.

Through an exploration of Wright’s inspirations and more than 20 of his works woven throughout the vivid illustrations, the book brings to life his unique approach to design and his extraordinary contributions to the built environment.

The Shape of the World is a must-read for anyone interested in sharing the story of Wright with a young audience. (Side note: A pile of wooden shaped blocks connects to the narrative and creates an afternoon of FLW-inspired play)!
