The Shape of Me and Other Stuff gives children the opportunity to identify all the amusing shapes throughout this book and match them to words. This is an important skill for 'pre-readers' and Dr. Seuss makes it extremely enjoyable!
This is a blue-back book. Ideal for sharing with your child. The rhymes and repetition work with the pictures to help pre-readers recognise the words.

Subtitled "Dr. Seuss's Surprising Word Book," The Shape of Me and Other Stuff certainly lives up to its billing. In this delightful book, first published in 1973, children are encouraged to ponder shapes they may never have considered before: "Just think about the shape of beans and flowers and mice and big machines!" Dr. Seuss's illustrations are in silhouette (for the purpose of accenting the outlines of figures), but are nonetheless up to par with his usual wacky, amusing style. Soaring well beyond the mundane arena of circles, triangles, and squares, here we are challenged to consider "the shape of camels … the shape of bees and the wonderful shapes of back door keys!" Kids will love the silly rhymes and funny pictures, and parents will appreciate this original take on the largely untapped world of shapes. (Under fives)Review:
