K-Gr 2-This book teaches children about shapes, colors, and friendship. As the story progresses, so does the number of shapes introduced. When the personified shapes unite, they create bigger and better shapes. They wind up having a lot more fun together than they ever had alone. Not only will students learn geometric concepts, they will also understand that working together does make things better.

PreS-Gr 1-- An introduction to basic shapes featuring brightly colored illustrations. Squares, rectangles, triangles, and circles are limited to playing and associating only with others just like themselves, until they discover the creative possibilities of being friends with those who are different. In the end, the various shapes combine to make wagons, locomotives, and boats.
