REVIEW: Circle, Triangle, Elephant: A Book of Shapes and Surprises

Happy November! Today’s featured nominee is from our relatively recent Board Books category, and it looks adorably funny. The book is Circle, Triangle, Elephant: A Book of Shapes and Surprises by Kenji Oikawa and Mayuko Takeuchi. The reviewer is Round 1 judge Tiffa Foster of The Picture Book Review–she’s a onetime university professor and current stay-at-home mom who enjoys sharing her favorite children’s books, from board books to kids’ graphic novels. Her three-year-old son really enjoyed this particular nominee:

Circle, Triangle, Elephant! has a very simple premise, but with its utterly charming and beguiling illustrations, its perfect pacing, and its expertly placed surprises, is an uproarious read that easily puts children into hysterics.
