"If two side were smaller
and the other two taller,
a rectangle is what you'd call it.
It's the shape of this doorway,
this postcard from Norway,
and a check and this wallet.
Like a square, only wider,
this billboard for cider
in its shape.
Like a square, only taller,
so is the wall or
the frame for this fine
For some children the ability to learn basic geometric shapes can be very difficult. This type of book is a real boon to the visual and/or auditory learner; one will benefit from the wonderfully zany illustrations in this book and the other will benefit from the fun and kooky rhymes. By the time a youngster gets through with this book, he or she should be able to identify the elements of five basic geometric shapes and have the ability to compare and contrast one with the other with ease. This is the first "Math Is Categorical" book I've read by Brian Cleary and I'm hooked. I've loved of any of his "Words Are Categorical" had the privilege to meet and highly recommend them to any parent of a reluctant learner. Any Cleary book would be a welcome addition to any homeschool or classroom shelf!
