Summary: A boy and a girl introduce nine shapes: triangle, semicircle, crescent, trapezoid, rectangle, circle, oval, diamond, and square. Then they start putting the shapes together to see what they look like. A triangle on top of a semicircle can look like a ballerina or an elephant with a thousand balloons on his back. A crescent on top of a trapezoid? A bull ready to charge or a fish jumping in the sea. The final two pages show twelve shape combinations and ask readers what they see. 32 pages; ages 2-6.
Pros: A fun introduction to shapes that will have kids looking for geometry in their everyday lives.
Cons: According to other reviews, the author has created two apps to explore shapes and colors, but they’re not mentioned anywhere in the book.
