If kids look closely, they’ll see that the simple delights of the world are fashioned by shapes. In Thong’s (Round Is a Mooncake: A Book of Shapes, 2000) newest concept book, lyrical and playful text, peppered with Spanish words, invites readers to see, count, and find the objects that shape our world. What objects are round? “Round are campanas / that chime and ring. / Round are the nests / where swallows sing.” Slices of sweet sandía (watermelon) chilled on ice are triangular, ventanas (windows) are square, and huevos (eggs) are oval. Thong’s inviting, rhyming text is delightfully animated by Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor Book Award winner Parra (Waiting for the Biblioburro, 2012), who paints a vivid setting inspired by a rich Latino folk palette. With each turn of the page, kids will enjoy finding and counting the shapes in Parra’s stunning visual interpretations of Latino families, communities, and fiestas. A glossary of Spanish terms concludes. Preschool-Grade 1. --Angie Zapata --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
