The world is full of shapes, and we are going to join Bear in his colorful world to look at all kinds of circles, squares, diamonds, triangles, and more. Make sure that you look at the pictures very carefully because there are shapes all over the place.

Here is bear, and he is visiting the queen in her castle. Can you find the hearts that are decorating the queen’s hair? Now bear is in school. The classroom is full of rectangles. Can you find them all?

Debbie Harter’s charming richly colored artwork brings this Bear story to life. Children will have a grand time exploring the illustrations and looking for the hidden shapes. Look for other titles in the Bear book collection.
