Most shape books ask readers to find shapes in the everyday world; Hesselberth does the opposite and sparks children’s imaginations.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Round, curvy, pointy, or straight-shapes are all around us.

With vibrant illustrations that highlight shapes in all their forms, this informative book reinforces the identification of circles, squares, crescents, diamonds, triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, and ovals while encouraging kids to pair shapes together to make new forms.
