Circles Around Town.
Circles around Town. Nathan Olson. Mankato, MN: Capstone Press,
2006. Illus., hardcover, 32 pp., $23.93.
The ability to see distinctively is thematic in this book and
others in the Shapes around Town series. Circles, which are an appealing
subject in the pre-K classroom, are the focus here. The descriptive text
includes questions that encourage comparative thought for older
students. Photographs reveal examples of circles within everyday urban
life including bakeries, street signs, and playgrounds. A simple
glossary, index, and reference explain essential vocabulary and
introduce the importance of research. English language learners will
benefit from this simple yet thought-provoking book.
