Eric Carle does it again with another wonderful book.

You won't use it for long, but all of his books are good for really young kids learning the basics.

It's nice that the pictures are big and colorful, it keeps their attention.

Format: Board book
In his acceptance speech for the ALA Laura Ingalls Wilder medal, Eric Carle referenced that he appreciated a description of his books as being "literature for the not-yet and just-about-to-be-reader" (Carle, 2003, 424). This time, Carle is teaching his almost readers about shapes through reincarnations of familiar characters from his other stories (the watermelon from a caterpillar reminiscent of the infamous Very Hungry, a friendlier version of the Grouchy Ladybug) to demonstrate shapes. Value contrast is applied to make the black shapes on the top part of the split book format jump off the page. A greater variety of shapes than expected (think crescent or squiggle) are introduced. Parents can use the book to engage children in a dialogue about other familiar objects that may be the same shape. It would not be useful in practicing print awareness, because the nature of the book does not encourage a child to begin at the start of the book, but being able to start the book on any page may capture the attention of the young audience.

Eric Carle books are so colorful and educational so I'm a big fan. I try to collect them all for my children.
This book in particular is wonderful. My 2 year old enjoys flipping through the board book pages himself, trying to find the matching shapes. (Pages are divided top and bottom).

This is a very simple book. The top shows shapes and the bottom shows images that represent them. You flip through and match them up. Despite its simple nature I must give it a 5 star review because my 2 year old loves to look at it. I'm not sure when a squiggle became a shape, but it seems to be her favorite image.

Eric Carle has always been one of my favorite authors. My 11 month loved this book as she did all the others. It's nice that the pictures are big and colorful, it keeps their attention. Every time my kids pick up this book we have to read it at least 5 times before they will let me go on to the next book. :)

Format: Board book
It is one of the best introduction to shapes books I've seen. It has a wider variety of shapes than most books do. Each shape is also labeled and with the variety of shapes, beginning readers will be introduced to words they may not have had to read before. For instance, Sean has now learned the word almond. Of course the book has the lovely paper collage illustrations by Eric Carle which gives the book a vibrancies and personality. Finally, the book is a matching game. The pages are cut in the middle with a Carle illustration on one half and a black silhouette on the other half. Readers of the book are asked to match the black shape with the Carle picture. As the shapes aren't in order the book is somewhat challenging than a more traditional shape book.
