KIRKUS REVIEW

A circular doorway stops Little Square from joining his round friends. What to do?

With prodding from a fingertip, a small square and eight Little Circles bounce and spin against plain white backgrounds until a bell summons all indoors. Little Square can’t follow despite his best efforts to bend and stretch into a more rounded shape, so the Circles offer to saw off his corners. Little Square’s understandable rejection of that idea leads to a better solution: sawing corners into the door (with further help from a tapping finger). This rudimentary episode is presented on just nine screens, with an animated, multivoiced audio narration that can be muted and lively background music that cannot. A Spanish version is available as a separate purchase.

More scenario than story, but workable as a starter for discussions about cooperation and physical differences. (iPad storybook app. 4-6)
