The Shape of Me and Other Stuff

This wonderful story by Dr. Seuss rejoices in the uniqueness of all things, because everything has a different shape. From you and me to a camel and a key, no two things ever have quite the same shape, and that’s a reason to shout hooray! And in a departure from his other books, the story is illustrated with silhouettes, so readers really can see the shape of things and other stuff!

Tie-in Activity: As you read through the story, pause and point to a shape to let your child guess the object before you read the word. You might also read this book outside together on a sunny day, then look at clouds—what shapes to you see? Or introduce your baby to his shadow, showing how it can grow bigger, smaller, or disappear in the shade.
