SHAPE SHIFT

Round, curvy, pointy, or straight-shapes are all around us.

With vibrant illustrations that highlight shapes in all their forms, this informative book reinforces the identification of circles, squares, crescents, diamonds, triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, and ovals while encouraging kids to pair shapes together to make new forms. Written and illustrated by Joyce Hesselberth.

"Get your sketchbooks ready: “Shape Shift” is the kind of book you’ll want to read with a pen and paper nearby, since it works as a storybook and a creative tool, too. . . Sure to inspire nascent builders and budding artists, too." — The Boston Globe

"Most shape books ask readers to find shapes in the everyday world; Hesselberth does the opposite and sparks children's imaginations." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
