Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
According to this bouncy concept book, learning geometric shapes can be as much fun as dancing about a room. A spirited girl in a blue leotard empties a toy chest full of multicolored shapes to commence the festivities. Incorporating all the appropriate shape names, the young dancer rocks on a rectangle, taps on a triangle and swings a circle round and round. She dons a tutu of shapes and a triangle hat, and even builds herself a partner to play with before it's time to put everything away. Falwell's exuberant text makes good use of repeating the proper shape names, while her bold designs on ample white space provide many opportunities for their identification. Snappy, often rhyming phrases pepper the pages and encourage an active read-aloud, though the lack of meter in some spots may slow the proceedings a bit. Not labeling each shape with its name, but relying on the text to provide the answers seems to work here, and makes the art more versatile. The enthusiastic guide through these pages will keep readers trying to guess what comes next. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-- A young gymnast encounters a huge box of bright, multicolored shapes. - `` `Hmmmm . . . ,' '' she says. Soon she's dancing among them, wearing them, balancing on them, building with them. The text, light and airy, is dressed up with rhyme: ``Take a shape/ take a step/ take a chance/ try a dance . . .'' as the brown-skinned girl, wearing a skirt of triangles, curtsies to the dance partner she's assembled of circles, triangles, and squares. Equally breezy are the colorful illustrations; the ample bright white background makes the shapes stand right out, and ably suggest their relationships to one another. The image of the little girl, the grace of her four- or five-year-old body, and the delight in her face generate the interest and involvement that make the book successful. It has a slightly older look than that projected by the toddlers photographed for MacKinnon/Sieveking's What Shape? (Dial, 1992), but it's less challenging than Yenawine's Shapes (Delacorte, 1991). And it doesn't rely on a gimmick like the mix-and-match split pages that sustain Eric Carle's My Very First Book of Shapes (HarperCollins, 1985). Pleasant and playful, Shape Space works as an entertaining picture book as well as a first exposure to basic geometry. --Liza Bliss, formerly at Leominster Public Library, MA
