"The Shape of My Heart" by Mark Sperring, illustrated by Alys Paterson
Mark Sperring's The Shape of My Heart is pretty cute. It starts with the shape of a person and goes through other shapes you might see in a typical days and ends with the shape you love with- your heart. This is a great book for kids that are recognizing and pointing out shapes, though I do recommend it for kids that have a decent grasp on shapes, not for kids that are just beginning to learn their shapes. Each page focuses on several shapes and could be overwhelming to kids that are just figuring out the difference between a square and a triangle. This book is also full of bright colors, great for asking "what color is this?"
