Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Three friendly guides—Triangle, Circle, and Square—point out attributes of other common shapes. Wilson's hip page design incorporates matte black and white with high-gloss hues as the fun-loving trio discovers stars and rectangles as well as the silhouettes of fruit and sports equipment. Nagel's playful rhymes are both spontaneous and purposeful; they work seamlessly with the graphics, directing readers about the page. "Shapes that glimmer up above [crescent moon]/Shapes that make you think of love [pink heart]." The candy-coated delivery will excite and engage children. Final pages encourage readers to look back and identify the shapes they have seen in action. The vivid, contemporary design is sure to appeal to a wide audience.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO

I was looking for some good books to supplement the 'math' section of our curriculum. I found this book to be helpful for pointing out various shapes and it was a bonus that it also rhymes! I reccommend this book and will be using it for years to come.

This is a wonderful rhyming book that will help your child learn shapes quickly and in a fun manner. The book arrived not only VERY late, but VERY poor condition. Pages were wrinkled and bumpy with a musty smell. This was a present ordered early November that didn't arrive until after Christmas. I think it only came because I sent a message wondering where it was. The story is SUPER, the sellers are not.

My 6 year old son enjoys reading the book by himself over and over. The downside of this book is that some pages like to stick together because of the nature of the type of glossy material used. We had to return and exchange the first copy.

My son absolutely loves this book. I really like reading it with him, and we've read it so many times that I am ordering another copy. He takes it to bed with him. We taped the pages that his brother ripped out back into the book one night because he didn't want to go to bed without reading "shapes," as he refers to it. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a fun, educational book with really neat graphic art and a rhyme that is really good until the last couple of pages.
