PreS-K–Woodhull and National Geographic photographer Rotner offer a colorful introduction to shapes. Shapes are everywhere, from a small marble to the moon and stars. Each page discusses one shape and the many places it can be found. The large, vivid photographs will encourage preschool readers to point out their favorite shapes on each page. The wide range of items shown will prompt discussions about size, color, and distance. Woodhull’s simple, poetic prose lists objects for each shape, leaving plenty of room for youngsters to interact, volunteer their own suggestions, and think outside the (square) box.
VERDICT A smart title for preschool collections in public libraries.
