"Shapes cavort in the form of circle dogs that live in a big square house in this delightful book" (Kirkus Reviews)The simple story presents a day in the life of two dachshunds, including meals, playtimes, naptime, etc. Henkes funny text and Yaccarino's bold, geometric illustrations are a perfect pair.

Note: This book wasn't written specifically to teach shapes...but it's full of shapes and references to shapes, making this a fun book to read during your unit on shapes.
