PreS-Gr 1‘An introduction to six basic shapes illustrated with bright cut-paper collages. The book begins with ``A square is just a square,/ Until you add a roof,/Two windows and a door,/Then it's much, much more!'' An orange square appears above this simple verse. Opposite the text, that same shape is transformed by the addition of complementary details. On succeeding pages, a circle becomes a ferris wheel, a triangle changes to a sailboat, the rectangle is used to form a railroad train. Other more unusual shapes are also pictured: ovals and diamonds become eggs and kites. The final pages are crowded landscapes that contain all of the shapes. Borders of each spread show the featured shape that appears to be stamped with a potato-cut print. An effective concept book with many possibilities for spin-off activities at home and at school.‘Ruth Semrau, formerly at Lovejoy School, Allen, TX
