0807565385-PICK_A_CIRCLE-2Everything about this book is appealing – from the brilliant autumn scene on the cover to the festively written rhyme of the text.  Who can resist joining the hayride to the pumpkin patch on a crisp afternoon?  You’ll be delighted with even more surprises as you read and enjoy this harvest adventure.

Pick a CIRCLE! Here’s the sun.
Apples, pumpkins – such ROUND fun!

Pick a SQUARE! This bale of hay:
a CUBE of straw’s my seat today.

Each page is a vibrant farm scene in which you can search among gourds, scarecrows, pumpkins, and fields for shapes of all kinds.   Not all the stars you find will be in the sky!   You may want to make a mug of cider and enjoy this several times.
