If you want to introduce your child to shapes such as a rhombus, rectangle, triangle, trapezoid, parallelogram, quadrangle, hexagon, rhombus, octagon, square and pentagon, this picture book might be one you'll wish to consider.

Mr. and Mrs. Shape are expecting a baby but they get a surprise when three little Shapes arrive. Now they have to name the new additions and that's where the relatives proffer suggestions. With Cousin Triangle and Aunt Hexagon sharing ideas it gets a little hectic, but that's OK, I guess, because by the time you finish this paperback you'll have all sorts of shapes dancing through your head.

Four pages of interactive activities are included in this book and will help take this story beyond just a flurry of names of various shapes. Math teachers will want to check this book out to see if it might be of use in the classroom.
