A perfect square is transformed many times, but each time the square finds a way to find pleasure in its new shape. When it finally is left alone, it feels unhappy in its old confining shape and reshapes itself in a way that encompasses all the shapes it has been.¿On Tuesday, the square was torn into scraps.So it made itself into a garden.¿A lovely simple story about the power of creativity and the way to find happiness in times of difficulty.

This simple book will show young readers how to look at something simple or old in a new, more complex and creative way.

One perfect square is transformed over and over into a variety of creative pictures: a fountain, a park, a garden, and a mountain to name just a few of the transformations.I ran across this book on a recent blogger hop. It was my "find" of the day. This simple, yet beautiful book offers readers glimpse at art and inspiration. It inspires creativity with just a few simple changes. Hall's brief text allows the illustrations to tell most of the story. I especially like how the square reinvents itself rather than being transformed by a person or some other outside force.Our school does not have an art program. I've set one of my goals for next year to include library lessons that will introduce the students to a bit of art. This book will be an excellent resource for an art project for Kindergarten through 5th grade. Recommended for Preschool and up.Mrs. Archer's rating: 5 of 5!
