Circle Rolls: The Story

In this book each shape takes on a stick man character. Circle is the lead character who rolls through along bumping into the other shapes. He knocks them, bumps them and topples them over and before exploding and causing havoc. It is left to Octagon, the sensible shape, to bring order back among the fun loving shapes. Heart then helps mend circle ready to roll another day.


What we love

The clever stick man illustrated shapes and fun rhyming adventure make this book perfect learning. We have been using it with the holiday makers here for a shape led farm activity hour and it has been very popular with the little ones.
