The "Take a Shape" series - Square by Britta Teckentrup (Words and Pictures)

Take a Shape: Square

Written and Illustrated by
Britta Teckentrup

Published by Words and Pictures

We don't often dabble in 'baby' books any more, mostly because "Little Miss" is getting very fussy as she gets older, but we both loved this book purely because it's A) utterly beautiful to look at and B) quirkily written and entertaining even when you're a cynical 7 (or 47) year old!

The "Take a Shape" series from Britta Teckentrup, published by Words and Pictures, is a lovely little square hard backed book exploring shapes, colours and characters. We follow animal characters having fun with shapes (in this case, the square) and other titles in the series explore circles, rectangles and triangles too.

Each scene is highly colourful and (as you'd expect) made from squares, so you'll find a cat springing out of a square box, a cute pup driving a square train, all bouncing along with the entertaining wordplay.

This looks like a brilliant little range to collect for your tiny ones as they progress from munchy chewable cloth books, through sturdy teething-aid board books and through to hardback / paper books they can love, look after and treasure.

"Take a Shape: Square" by Britta Teckentrup is out on 4th June 2015, published by Words and Pictures

Charlotte's best bit: Cat in a Box like a Jack in the box!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A fantastic early shapes and colours book, absolutely beautifully presented and sure to be a huge hit with your busy little tinies
