Bear in a Square, Oso en un cuadrado by Stella Blackstone

Bear in a Square

Shapes, counting, rhyming, bilingual Spanish and English—this book has it all. On each page bear is looking for a different shape—squares, hearts, circles, rectangles, triangles, rhombuses, zigzags, ovals, and stars. He has to find a certain number, 1-10 of each one. The total number of shapes on the page are shown on the sidebar on the right hand side of the page. The simple, rhyming text is in English and Spanish so children can learn the shape names in both languages. You can extend this book into an art activity by having children glue shapes onto their paper and create a picture around them.
