In this lively picture book, children discover a world of shapes: Rectangles are ice cream carts and stone metates, triangles are slices of watermelon and quesadilla. Many of the featured objects are Latino in origion, and all are universal in appeal. With rich, boisterous illustrations and a fun-to-read rhyming text, this playful book will reinforce shapes found in every child's day!
