Circle loves to roll — around and around. Solid Square likes to sit still and strong. Triangle can celebrate all her good points, and always knows which direction to go. But when Scribble suddenly dashes through their ordered world — all messy lines and energy — Circle, Square and Triangle don’t know what to think.

A sheer delight! I was lucky enough to get an ARC from the local sales rep, and I am so glad that I did. In classic Ohi style this is adorable, colorful, and educational all at once. I highly recommend it for storytimes and fun times.

A sweet story telling in a simplistic way that young readers will enjoy. Three shapes - Circle, Square, Triangle - are happy being what they are within their own limits. Along comes Scribble and they discover how much more creative they can be.

Circle, Square, and Triangle has opinions about the way shapes should be. When Scribble arrives with too many points but no shape, they're scared and unsure. Circle joins in playing with Scribble first and realizes what fun he can help create. It's an imaginative and relevant story.

A simple colourful tale that reveals through one's imagination that you can be/ or do more, than one thing....that dreaming of possibilities produces endless ideas.
