It’s October, and what’s more fun than a family trip to a farm for a harvest hayride and pumpkin picking? While there, the family is on the spy to see how many different shapes they can find. Round pumpkins and apples, a square bale of hay, oval eggs, a rectangular box, hexagons in the chicken-wire fence, and triangle slices of pie. What other shapes can be found?

This concept book is perfect to share with preschoolers. Susan Swan’s illustrations include cut paper and bright autumn colors that will keep youngsters entertained as they search for the various  shapes.
