We are shapes / Melinda Beck.

Beck, Melinda. (Author).


A playful and clever board book about shapes and teamwork by a two-time Emmy-nominated children's content creator at Nickelodeon. Pitch-perfect for a preschool audience, this board book introduces shapes and explores themes of teamwork and resilience. Square, rectangle, triangle, circle, squiggly and lumpy all work together to build a house. Each shape makes a unique contribution, and collectively they achieve something that they could not do alone. With an emphasis on interpersonal development, and visually inspired by the children's books created by Russian Constructivists, this is an artful, fresh take on the evergreen topic of shapes.
