More About This Title Squares


A clever guessing game about shapes that will stimulate the imagination



Learning shapes is a lot more fun when there are surprises involved, and this die-cut board book from master artist and designer Yusuke Yonezu is full them. Squares and rectangles are everywhere, and the shapes and colors found in everyday objects come to life when the pages of the book are turned. The interactive format will both educate and entertain the youngest readers.


Yusuke Yonezu is an author and illustrator of children’s books, including the Guess What? series, 5 Little Apples, Bottoms Up!, Rainbow Chameleon, We Love Each Other, and Yum Yum!


"An exercise in strongly colored simplicity. Thick pages with cut-outs invite babies and toddlers to feel the shape of squares and rectangles as well as to notice how the same shapes can represent different things. 'Two rectangles can become . . . two candles or two pencils.' 'This small square could be . . . an ice cube or a piece of chocolate.'" —Megan Cox Gurdon, Wall Street Journal"An engaging, visually appealing introduction to basic shapes, developmentally appropriate for infants and toddlers." —Kirkus Reviews"These impeccably designed concept books are deceptively simple and pack lots of opportunity for an engaging reading experience . . . . The bright primary and secondary colors against white backgrounds are just right for toddlers." —slj.com
