The Shape of Things (Dayle Ann Dodds)
This sprightly introduction to shapes shows children how circles, squares, and triangles are parts of things they see every day. "A square is just a square, / Until you add a roof, / Two windows and a door, / Then it's much, much more!" The verse and a solid square appear on the right half of the two-page spread; a simple house appears on the left. Among the book's delights are its appealing, crisp design, clever paper-collage art, and its choice of kid-appealing subjects (like kites to illustrate the diamond shape) to grab attention.
