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. The added attractions in this book are the slides built into the pages. The cover shows a variety of shapes, and they are all featured in the book. The circle is represented by a soccer ball, but when the side is pulled out it is just a simple blue circle. The square is a picture frame and again the slide reveals a simple square the same color as the background on the page. In a bit of an unusual switch, the triangle is represented by the eyes and nose on a jack-o-lantern. Other unusual choices are the body of a red wagon for the rectangle and a balloon to represent and oval. The remaining shapes are more typical—kite for the diamond, a golden star and a heart shaped candy box. At the conclusion of the book, George encourages kids to walk around the neighborhood to spot as many shapes as they can. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Meet the Author

The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father’s home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys’ home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and CURIOUS GEORGE was published in 1941. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. CURIOUS GEORGE has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.
