A girl discovers that shapes are everywhere in this companion to Round Is a Mooncake. Spanish vocabulary words are sprinkled throughout rhyming, reader-directed verse: “Stone metates inside our casa/ help us grind our corn to masa./ Rectangles are flags that fly/ above the scoreboard, way up high./ How many rectangles do you spy?” Parra’s thick paintings have a rough, weathered wood-grain texture, and his figures—with their serene facial expressions and rosy cheeks—resemble Mexican folk-art dolls. Whimsical elements like a mermaid in the bay and celestial ornaments dangling from an avocado tree add pizzazz to this poetic ode to shapes. Ages 4–8. Author’s agent: Natalie Lakosil, Bradford Literary Agency. (Apr.)
