Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—"Look around. What shapes do you see?" This shape-shifting story reinforces the identification of circles, squares, crescents, diamonds, triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, and ovals while encouraging readers to pair shapes together to make new forms. The illustrations, done in mixed media and digital paint, are playful and bright, mixing various textures with lines. The author/illustrator also has two educational apps that further explore shapes and color. VERDICT A fun introduction to shapes for young children, and a solid addition to early learning collections.—Paula Huddy, The Blake School-Highcroft Campus, Wayzata, MN

Review

A Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year

"Muted colors and bold, graphic designs highlight the shapes in the illustrations. . . making it easy to pick them out within the scenes. Most shape books ask readers to find shapes in the everyday world; Hesselberth does the opposite and sparks children's imaginations."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Get your sketchbooks ready: “Shape Shift” is the kind of book you’ll want to read with a pen and paper nearby, since it works as a storybook and a creative tool, too. . . Sure to inspire nascent builders and budding artists, too."-The Boston Globe

"Hesselberth encourages children not just to recognize shapes but to see their potential as creative building blocks. "-Publishers Weekly

"A fun introduction to shapes for young children, and a solid addition to early learning collections."-School Library Journal

"The colorful mixed-media and digital artwork emphasizes the highlighted shapes. . . a concept story hour."-Booklist

“The challenge of finding ALL of the shapes in these gorgeous pictures will keep children interested. . . A superb way for children to learn more about shapes and practice their numeracy skills!” ―Curious Little Apps on PrestoBingo Shapes

“The graphic details in this app are so beautifully done that it looks like you were reading a children's book or a nursery rhyme. ” ―Bloesem Kids on PrestoBingo Shapes

“This colourfully inventive and interactive, shape-finding and counting app for kids is a real treat and more challenging than you might expect.” ―LMNOP on PrestoBingo Shapes
