I couldn't get this book out of the house fast enough, as I simply didn't want to have to read it again. It may have been because my children were too old when we got it (4 and 5), and already knew their shapes. But, even so, the book (both the text and the illustrations) was dreadfully dull and didn't engage anyone.

The artwork in this book is so cheerful and cleverly done. It gives you a really fun way to teach shapes to your child. The discovery of a sunken treasure chest adds to the adventure and excitement for the child. The boats and fish are so colorful you wish you could jump into the pictures. I took it out of my library but am going to buy a copy for my child. She is 22 months old and is learning her shapes, but is not able to count high enough to count the number of some of the shapes on the pages. But then, that means she can grow with the book. And isn't that exactly what you want out of a children's book?
