Brown Rabbit receives a package and various shapes are introduced as they open it. This book has wonderful pictures with simple text, there's a narrator who introduces the various shapes but no dialog. No, there's not much of an adventure but Baker still manages to make the book fun and engaging. Also, we learn about multiple shapes, which is always good.

This is a wonderful book to teach preschoolers about shapes. I used it to do my interactive lit, last semester.

This is a cute book about a rabbit who gets a gift and the shapes that are contained within the gift. Short and colorful...perfect for younger children.

Anything with balloons makes me smile

This one would be better for the younger kidlets since it's so short and brief.
