In this lively picture book, children discover a world of shapes all around
them: rectangles are ice-cream carts and stone metates, triangles are slices
of watermelon and quesadillas. Many of the featured objects are Latino in
origin, and all are universal in appeal. With rich, boisterous illustrations, a
fun-to-read rhyming text, and an informative glossary, this playful concept
book will reinforce the shapes found in every child’s day!
