Picture Books About Shapes

We are focusing on shapes this week, exploring how many sides each has and finding shapes all around us.

We found these great picture books at our local library using a SUBJECT search for “Shapes — juvenile fiction.” Using these search terms in a subject search will help you find children’s fiction about shapes instead of everything in the collection that mentions the word “shape.”

The books I’ve selected feature shapes all around a child, in their homes, at a local fair, in their neighborhoods and in their cultures. Learning shapes and how to recreate them is a milestone toward learning to write letters.

  • City Shapes by Diana Murray
  • Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets by Hena Khan
  • Friendshape by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
  • Go, Shapes, Go! by Denise Fleming
  • Have You Seen My Monster? by Steve Light
  • Round is a Tortilla by Roseanne Greenfield Thong
  • The Shape of My Heart by Mark Sperring
