"Tangerines, garbanzo beans, a button on a belly! A bubble, a bead, a bagel, a ball, the lid from a jar of jelly."
In this clever concept book, alliterative rhyming text and bold photographs encourage children to identify round objects in the world around them. The objects, a grape with a globe, a pea with a pancake, are placed against vibrant hand-painted backgrounds, and cleverly juxtaposed to show that round things come in all sorts of sizes.
A final spread invites pre-schoolers to locate everything round in a familiar jumble of objects. Don’t miss the companion book, What Is Square?, from the same talented poet-and-photographer team.
