Stella Blackstone's "Bear in a Square" board book is a colorful, enchanting, and exciting way for preschoolers (and the precocious three-year-old) to start identifying their shapes in a fun puzzle format. The rhyme scheme creates a rhythm that will have children memorizing the book in no time and the challenging new words, i.e. "zigzags" in "Find the zigzags around the clown", will keep them interested. The book provides a "cheat sheet" in the end, identifying all the shapes it mentions in the previous pages, which gives parents and teachers a chance to review the shapes before or after the first read-through. Illustrations by Debbie Harter are fun and detailed, down to the pig-like snouts on the flying bats in the cave. Altogether, a perfect way to introduce shapes beyond the basic square, circle, and triangle. Recommended for children under 4.
