Shape of Things
This book serves as a fun introduction to shapes. Rhymes and illustrations show little ones how shapes are all around us. Over the course of a page spread, children will watch as a simple shape transforms into a familiar object. See a square become a house by adding windows and a door, a diamond become a kite by adding string and a tail, and much, much more. ~ Emily G
A square is just a square until it becomes a house in this clever book. A circle becomes a spinning ferris wheel, and when you add some string and a tail to a diamond shape, it becomes a kite flying high in the sky! With sprightly rhymes and energetic illustrations filled with hidden shapes, Dayle Ann Dodds and Julie Lacome reveal that shapes are everywhere. Encouraged by this entertaining introduction to an important first concept, young children will eagerly begin to identify shapes in the world around them.
