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
