What Is Round?

Overview

Tangerines, garbonzo beans, a button on a belly! With the snappy rhythm of a bouncing ball, Rebecca Kai Dotlich's, simple, precise poem points out some familiar and less obvious examples of round things found in a child's world. Filled with bright, clear photographs of simple everyday objects like cookies, balloons, and blueberries, the concept of round becomes clear and almost tangible!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Colorful illustrations of familiar round objects make learning this concept easy. The rhyming text by Dotlich when read aloud is fun and kids will soon be repeating the rhyming phrases themselves. "Tangerines, garbanzo beans, / a button on a belly! / the lid from a jar of jelly." It ends with a challenge to find all of the round objects on the last spread. Part of the "Harper Growing Tree" series.
School Library Journal
PreS-The garbanzo beans on the first spread of this concept book are a good indication of the quality of this title-a little lopsided at best. The book explores things that are round through a poem and full-color photographs. The objects are named in the text and shown against vividly painted backgrounds, giving children the chance to focus on each one. The final spread is a guessing game in the "I Spy" (Scholastic) fashion, where youngsters can find round objects in a selection of other items. Unfortunately, some of the featured objects are not really or not always round-a bell, garbanzo beans, a belly button, the moon. Dotlich's text is uneven as well. Sentences and rhymes do not flow smoothly from page to page, and the poem can be unwieldy, as items are strung together without a natural ending point. Ferrari's photographs, however, are bright and uncluttered, perfect for attracting the attention of preschoolers. While this would be a good additional purchase for concept-book collections, Tana Hoban's Round and Round and Round (Greenwillow, 1983; o.p.) is a better introduction to the circles of our world.-Susan Marie Pitard, Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA
Kirkus Reviews
Bright full-color photographs, featuring bold objects and dramatic contrasts, characterize this first book about shapes in the Growing Tree series.
