James Kaczman's vibrant illustrations present shapes in a variety of sizes and orientation, using objects that are already familiar to young children. For example, the book presents square crackers, rectangle doors, and circle pennies. Representations such as triangle jack-o' lantern's eyes and squares Christmas presents allows me to link my lessons to seasonal themes. The images also depict both large and small shapes, giving students an opportunity to compare their sizes.
Additionally, the text introduces vocabulary young children need to identify and describe geometric shapes. Greene conveys key concept words by combining children's descriptive language with geometric terminology. For instance, she describes a triangle as, "three sides, three corners too--the white sail of a boat, a tent just for you." The rhyming text engages children's imaginations, enabling them to begin to visualize shapes.
Most teachers know that concept books are not created equally. Greene's book stands out as a charming and fun book to introduce young scholars to geometric shapes. My class thoroughly enjoys reading it, and they eagerly look for and discuss shapes they see in their own environment. I highly recommend this book to all teachers and parents of young children.
