book review

Mouse Shapes by Ellen Stoll Walsh

Cover Image

This concept book presents shapes in a fun and simple way designed to catch the eyes and imagination of young readers.  Three paper collage mice experiment with brightly colored pieces of paper cut into simple shapes.  They take a triangle and a rectangle and make a tree, then take two diamonds and form a book.   Just as their enemy the cat shows up, the mice use the shapes to make “three big scary mice” and give the cat a big surprise.   The simple story and the graphic illustrations showcasing the brightly colored shapes make this a perfect book to share with your youngest readers.  And after you share the book, why not cut out some shapes and make up your own story together?
