There are some books for a child’s library. that are must-haves: An alphabet book, a counting book, a shape book. They can be straightforward…or they can be fun. That difference matters when you’re going to be reading it over and over and over (and over and over) each night.

So of course parents have been thrilled with the brand new This is a Book of Shapes. This laugh-out-loud funny story by acclaimed children’s author-illustrator Kenneth Kraegel, happens to double as a board book that will help kids master their shapes.

The deadpan text accompanies wonderful illustration that keeps kids — and their grownups — engaged and having fun. Toddlers will adore the illustrated shape and simple repetition, older kids will appreciate the wry humor, and babies, well they’ll enjoy gnawing on the corners. As babies do.

This is a Book of Shapes: A delightful new board book that makes learning shapes fun...and funny! (sponsor)

To keep the fun going, parents can even download a free coloring sheet featuring favorite characters from the book, like an emu holding a triangle, and a rhinoceros holding an oval.

That is, the rhinoceros you may recognize as the one who also wears a jetpack and skateboards across the desert while singing “Twinkle Twinkle.” He’s a busy guy.
