This board book full of circles and clever cut-outs is a wonderful way to introduce babies and toddlers to shapes.
Is it a balloon? An apple? A piece of candy or a flower? Read aloud and create a clever guessing game about shapes that will delight and stimulate the youngest readers. Circles are everywhere, and the shapes and colors found in everyday objects come to life when the pages of the book are turned.
Learning shapes is a lot of fun when there are surprises involved—this die-cut board book from master artist and designer Yusuke Yonezu is full of them.
"[One] of the more interesting items that have cropped up in my office this week . . . If you’ve seen Yonezu’s other board books you’ll know what to expect. Good thick lines and bright colors. This one has loads of cut outs as well. Plus it’s hard to resist the back of the book." —Elizabeth Bird, blogs.slj.com
"An engaging, visually appealing introduction to basic shapes, developmentally appropriate for infants and toddlers." —Kirkus Reviews
"Big fun. Both clever and beautiful, this board book uses die-cut holes, bright colors, and clean, sophisticated graphic design to help toddlers identify all the circles around them." —Maria Russo, NYTimes.com
