What's Shapes About

Publisher Summary

Applying the tactile features of Montessori teaching, this innovative board book uses lightly grained sandpaper tracks to encourage children to trace various shapes as they enjoy whimsical illustrations of each. Shapes introduced include; squares, diamonds, ovals, rectangles, hearts, hexagons, diamonds, trapezoids, octagons and stars. Sturdy board pages and no moveable parts make this a unique addition to an early learning collection.

What Kind of Book is Shapes

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Lemony Snickers
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
5.0 / 7.0

Shapes is a cute book as far as shapes books go, and it introduces a few shapes that aren’t often included in board books–like trapezoids and octagons. The illustrations are fun and light, and if you’re going to learn shapes, why not learn them in everyday objects around you! Okay, so maybe cats don’t normally wear trapezoidal glasses–but it’s still fun.

Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
6.5 / 7.0

I just love Katie Wilson’s books! This Shapes book also helps you count to ten, plus, it has the most beautiful illustrations!!! This is a great board book to help little ones learn their shapes, but it’s also great for a little bit older toddlers as it has some more difficult shapes like trapezoids and octagons.
