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.
