GoodReads: Round are tortillas and tacos, too Round is a bowl of abuela's stew. In this lively picture book, children discover a world of shapes all around them: Rectangles are ice-cream carts and stone metates, triangles are slices of watermelon and quesadillas. Many of the featured objects are Latino in origin, but all are universal in appeal. With rich, boisterous illustrations, a fun-to-read rhyming text, and an informative glossary, this playful concept book will reinforce the shapes found in every child's day!
Mine: Great rhyming about shapes. Very colorful illustrations.
A great mixture of Spanish and English word that explain different shape – never thought of a tortilla chip as a nice triangle. Tortillas are great circles. Flags are wonderful rectangles. I guess if you look you can find shapes it just about everything.
A wonderful glossary at the end of the book to explain what the words mean.
