Shape by Shape
by Suse MacDonald



This cute book of shapes would be more effective if the cover didn't give away the punchline. The reader is asked "Do you know who I am?, followed by different shaped cut-outs that slowly, spread by spread, reveal parts of the 'mystery beast.' 

The last spread (with a fold out) shows the entire dinosaur-- "an appealingly rounded creature made up of all the various shapes, with the addition of a big red heart" (Bklst).

HINT: If you're going to read this book to your class or children, preserve the mystery element (what creature is being unveiled) by hiding the cover of the book!
