SHAPES THAT ROLL by Karen Nagel
CHILDREN'S
Released: Nov. 9, 2009

An orange circle, a pink triangle and a green square introduce children to many different shapes in a visually appealing overview of the topic. Loosely rhyming text initially describes the many things that different shapes can do—they can be thrown (balls), shine (stars), freeze (glaciers)—and then moves on to give attributes of shapes (spheres are round, circles are flat). Each shape is brightly colored and laminated; they almost look like stickers. While there is a great deal of information here, there is perhaps not enough focus: Many large, general ideas about shapes that may be new to children are presented briefly with little in-depth explanation. Still, the rhyme is catchy, Wilson's bright colors on white or black backgrounds are attention grabbing and children will enjoy studying the forms. The last few pages give the geometric names of the shapes within the book so that children can presumably go back and identify them. An eye-catching, very general introduction to the world of shapes.
