We Are Shapes

Melinda Beck’s board book is bright, colourful and very inviting for younger readers. Simply and clearly, it introduces basic shapes such as a square, rectangle, triangle and circle and their properties (the triangle has three sides and is very pointy).

The illustrations make it a joy as the children see how shapes can be used to form pictures together.
