This whimsical children's book goes through the most common shapes, pointing out that when a line bends, a shape begins! The poetic text complements fantastical pages that feature shapes in all sorts of forms.
A line is thin. A line is narrow—curved like a worm, straight as an arrow. Squares, circles, triangles, and many more shapes abound in this lively book. With jaunty, rhyming text, young readers are invited to find different shapes on each busy, vibrant page. Once you start looking, you won’t be able to stop! The perfect book for little ones beginning to distinguish shapes.
James Kaczman received a bachelor of fine arts degree from Massachusetts College of Art in 1982 and also studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He lives in a beautiful, green valley somewhere in the North, where he is a full-time illustrator. He resides there with his wife, Libby, his son, Henry, and a wire fox terrier named Chauncey, who is a funny, charming fellow.
"In this clever and fun introduction to assorted shapes, Greene and Kaczman
collaborate effectively, clearly expounding an oval, square or octagon through
bouncy rhyme, familiar examples and clean-edged artwork," wrote PW. Ages 4-8.
