This is the shape of us,
the shape of you and me
This is the shape of our eyes,
and this is the world that we see...

From sun up to sun down, from our hands and our feet, to animals, cars, food, and teddy bears, the world is alive with endless shapes to identify. Once you start to look, who knows what shapes you'll discover next! With its gently reassuring text and vivid illustrations, The Shape of My Heart invites readers to look beyond the obvious, and explore the world in a whole new way.

for younger kids maybe 3 or 4. its a book about shapes and how a parents love is the shape of many things. I dont know how i feel about this book. it feels like something a pre school could read aloud to transition from valentines activities to a math lesson on shapes. Read full review
