Shapes at School

From the Series Shape Hunters

Shapes at School takes readers through a day at school, pointing out the many familiar shapes they encounter in the classroom, in the lunchroom, and on the playground. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text engage emergent readers as they hunt for shapes at school.

A labeled diagram helps readers identify shapes in a classroom, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about shapes online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Shapes at School also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.

Shapes at School is part of Jump!’s Shape Hunters series.

Series Made Simple

These delightful introductions to the world of shapes are bold, bright, and well written. Each volume describes the shapes that can be found in different locations. For instance, Farm explains how barn windows are shaped like rectangles and how the wheels on a tractor are shaped like circles. With simple vocabulary, a large print size, and concise text (one to four sentences are included on each page), these titles will appeal to budding readers. Visual learners will appreciate the clear, attractive photographs. An “Ideas for Parents and Teachers” section at the beginning of each book provides ways for adults to start conversations about the concepts. VERDICT Strong offerings that fill the gap of nonfiction titles for beginning readers.–Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN
