The youngest children will love this—and so will adults who enjoy sharing reading time with them. Each picture in A Circle Here, A Square There brings out the angles, curves, and lines in objects both everyday and unexpected. Artist David Diehl creates engagingly active graphic designs: whether it’s the secretive square of a wrapped gift, the surprising crescent of a moon, or the (nibbled) triangle of a piece of pizza, all the illustrations are striking and exuberantly colorful. Kids will make exciting connections between the letters of the simple words on the page, the exciting images, and the common shapes of the world around them.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Shapes. My quick research showed more than 150 board books addressing shapes published since 2005. It is a popular subject. On each spread of this book, the single word for the shape is printed in big letters. Then one or more examples are presented; usually, one large one is shown. For circle, we see a big scoop of ice cram in a sugar cone. The square is a big package tied with a bow. In both cases, kids are looking at the items with eager anticipation. The triangle is a piece of pizza, the rectangle a collection of containers on a ship. Other shapes include oval, heart, diamond, crescent, and octagon. The latter did seem a bit out of place, but the example of a stop sign will be familiar to most toddlers. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
