The Perfect Fit

Kane Miller. Mar. 2021. 32p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9781684641413.
PreS-K–Triangle loves playing with all of the shapes, but doesn’t quite feel like she fits in and goes on an adventure in search of her own kind. Though the bright yellow triangle with adorable freckles has fun with the blue circles, red squares, green hexagons, and white stars, something just doesn’t feel right. Reminiscent of The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, Jones takes a book about shapes and adds layers of depth on friendship and belonging. The sparse text, bright primary colors, and simple lines will appeal to young readers, especially those learning their shapes. The book has potential for use in story times and lap-sharing.
VERDICT A winsome picture book for pre-readers and early readers who are learning shapes, colors, and how to navigate early friendships.
