A square is just a square Until you add a roof Two windows and a door Then it's much, much more!
In this bright, energetic concept book, sprightly rhymes join bold illustrations to show young readers what shapes can be. The square on the text page becomes a house on the facing page, and in the same way, a circle becomes a Ferris wheel, two triangles a boat, a group of rectangles a train, an oval an egg, and a diamond a kite. A final spread puts the pieces together, combining all the earlier scenes into one glorious picture, but the bonus is still to come: a glorious double-page landscape full of surprises — and shapes — for children to find.
Potato-cut prints of the shapes add a winning, childlike touch to the festive cut-paper collage illustrations. After poring over this delightful picture book, curious kids will begin to see shapes everywhere in the world around them.
