Shapes, Shapes, Shapes dates from 1986, but it's still a great concept book that introduces children both to shapes and photography. Some lovely compositions of urban and daily life bring shapes to life for very young children. The book includes no text other than an introduction to the shapes they can look for in the pictures, and she includes a good range of shapes, from arcs to trapezoids with the usual suspects in between.

CIP: Photographs of familiar objects such as chair, barrettes, and a manhole cover present a study of rounded and angular shapes.

SLJ: Adults and kids of all shapes and sizes are in for a treat with this outstanding wordless book. Hoban's full color photos have an astonishing clarity and glow to them.
