To do so, it goes to the local shapeshifter so that it can have another side and angle thus become a different shape each time. Upon adding too many sides and too many angles it is no longer able to keep its balance, and becomes friendless and unhappy. Ultimately it goes back to the shapeshifter to become a triangle again. This book is great for a geometry lesson on shapes and polygons. It is also great for students to notice the different shapes of objects in our real world. In addition to this, the book promotes the idea of accepting oneself and being happy about who we are and what we can do.(less)

As the doorbell rings, the children realize that their share of the cookies will be less. Then the doorbell rings and more people arrive thus making the share of cookies between the visitors less. Will there be enough cookies for all of the visitors? This is a great book for children learning how to count or beginning to learn the concept of division. In addition, this book would be great for Prek or kindergarten students who are having a hard time with sharing things. The book involves a pattern (doorbell rings, more people, less cookies, doorbell, etc.) and lots of repetition. The illustrations are fun and colorful.(less)

The father tells the little snail a story about a snail who also wanted a bigger home, the shell became too big that the snail could not search for food or move. Finally, the little snail decides that a small shell is not so bad after all. This would be a great book to introduce size to students. What is big or small in relation to this object? The book has great illustrations. (less)

Whether the students are engaged in measuring in standard or nonstandard units, I would consider that this book can be useful in strengthening students' understanding of measuring anything and comparing the measurements between two or more objects. In this case, Penny uses her dog. This is a fun thing to measure, but for students who do not have pets, they can measure any other object. (less)
