The shapes in this book get mixed up, moved around, and reshaped into all kinds of animals. But can you guess which animal before they reshape?

When you mix up certain shapes and move them around, do you know what buzzy things they reshape into? Ten fluttering dragonflies! Now what about shapes that reshape into jumpy things? Would you guess nine slimy frogs? Turn each page to find a pile of shapes and a clue--stripy or clucky, prickly or pinchy, roary or scaly, stompy or fiery--then turn the page again to see if you're right.

This book is definitely one to use in a classroom setting to be immediately followed by a paper craft as the insides are enjoyable, but the cover is quite uninviting.

This book is great for learning numbers! I took it out for the kids at my work and it was actually a really fun book to read. It teaches numbers from 1-10 and shows how shapes can be used together to make images. It was fun for the kids to guess which type of animal the shapes would reshape into. There is not much of a plot or story line, it is more of a 123 numbers book.
