Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2?Students will begin to notice squares and circles everywhere after looking at these appealing photographs. Circles in squares, squares in circles, squares in squares, etc., can all be seen in many diverse objects, from dishwashers to colorful teapots, to brightly patterned fabrics. The photography is excellent and the subjects are varied. Making a book to illustrate common objects in the classroom and depicting the circles and squares would be a first rate follow up activity to reinforce these concepts. This is one of Hoban's best books on shapes yet.?Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA

From Booklist

Ages 3^-6. For her latest wordless picture book, Hoban has searched the city and found images of round things and square things to fit the concept of her title. Sticklers for geometric exactness will point out that onions and grapes are not circles and some of the "squares" have rounded corners. Still, teachers and young children will find plenty to talk about as they look at the colorful, well-composed, and clearly defined images. In fact, some of the pictures would make good starting points for imaginative thinking or creative-writing exercises. Another attractive, open-ended book from an exceptional photographer. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
I read this book to a class of two and three year olds. They love to find the circles and squares. It lets them "read" the book themselves. The quality photography is a pleasure for all ages. There is no text, which makes the book more interactive because you talk about the pictures with the children instead. This lets them be more active participants.

Toddlers will love turning the pages and discovering circles and squares in an exciting format. My children are learning so much looking at this book again and again. Also get the Dr. Seuss's book about shapes and a book called 'What Is Round?'
