2009 Award
Shape
(by David Goodman and Zoe Miller, Tate/Abrams $22.99 Score:)

This big square book is full of colorful examples that introduce the basic concepts of geometric shapes. The bright photographs give you plenty to talk about as you share this with preschoolers and early school years children. There are some activities suggested...we would add the simple idea of giving children the three dimensional objects to hold in their hands to reinforce the shape concepts they can only look at in a book. 3-7
