Circles, triangles and squares in a no word picture book by Tana Hoban. The entire book is filled with photographs of different people, places, things that are circles, triangles, squares, or a mixture of the three. Its interesting to see a book that's so simple yet can show kids that shapes are everywhere.
This would be a good book to use to teach kids about shapes and that they can find them all around. There is no story to go along with the pages so that can open up all sorts of possibiliti
An oldie but a goodie. Black and white photographs contain circles, triangles, and squares. The photos are fabulous all on their own, but in this book they really do well illustrating the concept of basic shapes. PreK-2.

With no words describing which shapes are shown or depicting the photographs, this book illustrates the three shapes of circles, triangles, and squares. This book would be fantastic for ESL students and their families, especially younger students.
I like this book, especially how the pictures are not in full color.
I would love to use this book in my classroom. Afterward, I would ask my students to find objects in the classroom that are circles, triangles, and squares so we could have our own lit

This book is a wordless picture book. There are pictures of people and objects to show circles, triangles, and squares. The pictures are all in black and white. I thought this was an interesting way to see and learn about shapes. The black and white pictures were a nice way to represent and focus on the shapes. This would be great to use in the classroom to show where shapes are seen in the real world and have the students talk about where else they see these shapes at.

Circles, triangles and squares by Tana Hoban is solely a picture book. The book contains black and white photos of geometric concepts of circles, triangles, and squares. THe shapes are featured in everyday life photos. The abstract take on shapes is a new, fun way for children to think of the concept. They get to find and observe different shapes that they pick out themselves. This book is great for children to really learn and find shapes on their own.

Shapes are hiding everywhere!

Dated but still totally usable & fun concept book. That preschool kid is going to love tracing the circles on all the pages. Check it out from the library!

Also grab Round and Round and Round.

Very similar to her other books. This book does not have any words in it. However, it provides fictional photography and examples of the different shapes used in our Dailey lives.
