My Shape is Sam by Amanda Jackson and Lydia Nichols - ADVISABLE

My Shape is Sam by Amanda Jackson, illustrated by Lydia Nichols. PICTURE BOOK. Page Street Kids, 2019.  $18. 9781624147708



Sam, a square, doesn’t mind being a sturdy part of bridge, a train, or a truck, but he is unhappy because he can only thump along when he is on his own.  He persists with rolling as much as he can and as his corners become more rounded, he finds a happy medium between sturdy and rolling and he calls his shape “Sam”.

Another option to show kids why they can breakout of the boxes that they are put into.  The illustrations are childlike, but they work very well. The corners of the pages are even rounded!
