No matter how hard she tries, Triangle doesn't roll like the circles, or stack like the squares—so she sets off to find friends that look exactly like her. But when she finds the other triangles, playtime isn't as fun. She misses the shapes that roll and stack; she misses being different. So she starts a new quest, one that gets all of the different shapes playing and having fun together!

Praise For…

"I love so much about this book! ... Math AND SEL?! What a wonderful combo for an elementary classroom!"
-- Unleashing Readers

"A cute story with a strong positive message about acceptance and inclusion, this book would be an excellent addition to any elementary collection."
-- PSLA Literature Review

"This was such a lovely read about welcoming what makes us unique and would make the most perfect gift for the early learner teachers in your life."
-- Kids Lit Is Lit

"A winsome picture book for pre-readers and early readers who are learning shapes, colors, and how to navigate early friendships."
-- School Library Journal

"Subtle textural variations lend visual interest. The clear themes of playing together and overcoming differences are appropriate for early-childhood classes, library storytimes, and family reading. ... Shape learning, color recognition, and a message of friendship, neatly arranged."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Now, clearly this is a perfect title for any shape unit you're teaching. ... In addition to naming and identifying shapes, though, this is a great title for discussing inclusivity and working together!"
-- Little Cub Literacy

"The narrative progresses at a good, steady pace while speech balloons add the characters' comments along the way. Still, it's the illustrations, featuring amiable little geometric characters, that will capture the audience with their childlike imagination, varied compositions, and pleasing design. This colorful picture book offers a playful introduction to recognizing geometric shapes and celebrating differences."
