Mouse Shapes, by Ellen Stoll Walsh (2007)

Picture Book, 36 pages

With adorable and crafty mice made of paper as their guides, children will love this shape adventure. The mice not only review basic shapes and what can be made when shapes are combined, but they also work to outsmart a wily cat. The text is clear and highlights the dialogue between the little creatures. With its blank background and black text, the colorful shape and animal cutouts stand out and would be a great read to a group of 2-4 year olds. Mouse Shapes would also be a great inspiration for a shape making project for home or school.
