Shapes, Reshape! - Silvia Borando

Staff Pick

What happens when shapes reshape? A stacked collection of various rectangles morphs into snakes, “sneakily slithering,” or “pinchy” crabs, “nip-your-nose nipping.” Though ostensibly a counting book, decreasing from ten to one, Silvia Borando’s clever Shapes, Reshape! (Candlewick, $14) features wordplay as rich and playful as its rectangular rearrangements. Young readers will adore contributing the repeated phrase “what could they be?” and predicting what animal appears next based on clues like “clucky” and “roary.” This nimble picture book works well as a read-aloud in early-childhood classrooms as well as at home, offering infinite possibilities to the geometrically, linguistically, and artistically inclined. Ages 3-5.
