A line is thin. A line is narrow -- curved like a worm, straight as an arrow. Squares, circles, triangles, and many more shapes abound in this lively book. With jaunty, rhyming text, young readers are invited to find different shapes on each busy, vibrant page. Once you start looking for shapes, you won't be able to stop! The perfect book for little ones beginning to distinguish shapes.
