my colored-in emu from the coloring page
It is really sweet to have a book in the Baby - Age 2 category. Those are the readers who don't just flip through a book, but really take their time with a book - they really chew on it! It is also really sweet to see This Is a Book of Shapes listed on Amazon as a Best Book of September in that category!
And here is what the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books said about This Is a Book of Shapes: Concept books come with expectations, and everybody knows them. Mastering basic shapes is a key element for preschool readiness, and everybody knows that. Kraegel breaks, most delightfully, from the program, throwing his audience off balance with one change-up and then another, until this rudimentary lesson is so swamped with giggles that tykes might forget they’re learning.
