A little triangle ambitions to become different shapes to experience what it is like to be able to be many things. 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.
