What did you like about the book:  Meet poodle and his new haircuts that can be all different shapes.  An early concepts shapes story for little ones. He begins with a CIRCLE ball on his head, a TRIANGLE that looks like a pyramid, a SQUARE that frames his face, RECTANGLES on your head look like a flower, OVALS provide a bird friend a place to nest, DIAMONDS make him look good, and a STAR lets him shine.  A nice introduction to shapes and how they connect to mathematics and geometry that will inform and entertain little friends. The back pages provide interesting facts about shapes.
