Editorial Reviews

"A simple book (that) paves the way for complicated concepts.”

Kirkus Reviews

"This deceptively simple-looking book challenges its young audience to conceptualize transformation and identity...It's a tremendously sophisticated conceit for a board book, but toddlers will see how one basic shape—a circle—can be found in many different contexts, and the second-person address can help lay the groundwork for understanding individuation later on. A simple book paves the way for complicated concepts."
