City Shapes

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Bryan Collier. This engaging volume, vibrantly illustrated by Collier in watercolor and collage, encourages children to identify the various shapes of a city. A young African American girl is the guide, and her obvious joy in her city is contagious. Murray's rhyming couplets scan well, making the rhythm easy to follow. Teachers seeking books for their math unit on shapes need look no further.
