Bright images offer loads to look at for young readers to think about the shape of all the things around them in the world. Birds have a shape and so does food. But what about love? Speculation about the very special shape and look of love leads to a touching and deeply reassuring conclusion.

Synopsis

The Shape of My Heart by Mark Sperring

The world is filled with shapes. A bird, a car, the stars in the sky - what shapes can you see? Children will love spotting familiar shapes on every page. With a warm story and bright illustrations, this is the perfect book to share with any child.

A concept book with a difference, with lots to identify and share, as well as a very loving message.
