Once you start to look, who knows what shapes you'll discover next!

Horn Book Review

Featuring everything from zoo animals to cars and trucks, this exploration of familiar shapes is well suited to very young children learning to recognize everyday objects. Sperring's simple rhyming text will appeal to parents as a quick read-aloud, though the words are almost incidental to the world created by Paterson's intensely colored mixed-media graphics, where kids will want to spend more time.
