More shapes

A long time ago, I made another book about shapes called SHAPE SPACE. I just ran across a couple of blogs about kids enjoying this book. Rachel, a creative child living in Cairo, made some wonderful collages with shapes. Check them out here. Kerry, a poet and dancer, posted this lovely entry: click here.

A Shape Capers Day in Westbrook, Maine

The Warren Memorial Library in Westbrook, Maine is presenting a Shape Capers Day
There will be lots of fun activities, including a treasure hunt, music making, crafts, movement games, and more. Books will be available for purchase, and I will also happily sign copies of my books that kids bring from home. Westbrook and Gorham have an inservice day on March 27th, so the public schools are closed. So---come down for some shape fun!

Shapes are Capering!

Here are some images, comments, reviews
and activities about
Shape Capers!
The book was released by Greenwillow in September 2007.
A special soft-cover edition was created for the Maine Reads
Read With ME program, and was distributed to 17,000 Maine kindergarten children.

Capering Shapes is a dance performance choreographed by the amazing Vicky Lloyd and her fabulous dancers at the Centre of Movement in Gorham, Maine. A video of the dance was created by Via-Vision Film & Video Productions, and can be seen on You Tube.
