Book Review: City Shapes

CITY SHAPES by Diana Murray is a beautifully illustrated picture book examining shapes found in everyday life.
Written for young children, the story follows a young girl as she discovers shapes all around her. Young children will find hidden shapes found throughout the book.
This engaging concept book encourages readers to re-read the story looking for shapes they may have missed the first time through.
Librarians will find that this colorful picture book provides an excellent exploration of shapes “all around us”. After reading the story, provide art tools or digital cameras and ask children to go out and find shapes in their world.
