Lines are all around us. They create squares. They form circles. They make up buildings within towns, and towns on Earth, and the Earth within the universe.
The concept of this book is so cute. I love that it starts with lines and shows how lines form to build shapes, and shapes build together to build towns, the world, and the universe! The illustrations are so cute and are great for older toddlers to pick out all of the shapes within the larger images.
