From Publishers Weekly
Geared to board-book graduates, the latest in the Story Corner series takes on the basics of shapes. Serfozo's (Who Said Red?) streamlined rhyming text invites readers to look closely at the art ("An oval, you know, looks a lot like an O. / Here's a great oval show!"); its perky rhythms form a sturdy springboard for Carter's (How Many Bugs in a Box?) typically offbeat cut-out creations. Depicted in sunny yet subtle contemporary hues, stick-limbed triangular tots play near a geodesic jungle gym; a circle mom and her two little dots gaze out with round, permanently astonished expressions. If not as unfettered as many Carter confections, it is nonetheless a spot-on preschool pleaser. Ages 2-4.

From Kirkus Reviews
From Serfozo (Joe Joe, 1993, etc.), an introduction to the square, circle, triangle, rectangle, oval, and diamond. Each one is identified and defined in simple catchy rhymes--bouncy enough to be read aloud--and copiously illustrated with accompanying shapes of all sizes and textures. Cut-paper collages feature bright, anthropomorphized shapes (with very expressive faces) against landscapes suitable for the featured shape. The book is conceived as an entertaining lesson, and concludes with a carefully designed review that makes sense of shapes in an easy and imaginative way.
