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
