    I love the appeal of this classic. Older elementary students can appreciate nature, our youngest students see the shapes. Yolen rules!

    Shape Me a Rhyme by Jane Yolen with photographs by her son, Jason Stemple, is the third in a poetry series. The other two books are Color Me a Rhyme and Count Me a Rhyme. I haven't read them but I plan to. In the introduction Yolen explains it was the most difficult one to complete because nature's shapes aren't always as regular as one would want for teaching basic geometry. Nonetheless the photographs work well with the poetry to express different geometric ideas.

Nonetheless the photographs work well with the poetry to express different geometric ideas. While I am a fan of Yolen's work, I have to admit that Stemple's luscious photography, especially the snail shell on the cover, was what roped me in. This book was one of those that I read once through and then went back through just for the photographs.

    Lovely photos provide the backdrop and subject for a series of nature poems for younger children. Ranging from thoughtful to humorous, the interplay of Yolen’s poems with Stemple’s photographs will appeal to children and might even inspire them to create their own poetry! 3.5 stars! SLJ: "There's much to consider in each image, and language- arts teachers will relish this book's ability to jump-start student creativity.

    I really loved the photos in this book. He found all the pictures in nature and then Jane put them to ryhme. I liked the triangle. To tell the truth, The gator's tooth--- Triangular in shape-- Is dangerous And dagger-ous When that great mouth's agape.

    Jane Yolen collaborates with her photographer son, Jason Stemple, to create a beautiful concept book about shapes. Stemple's nature photographs are stunning and Yolen's poems are simple yet describe much.

    The images in this book are beautiful! It is a book of short poems about the shapes you can find in nature. It would be a great story to read with a little one who had seen things in nature and could compare shapes to the shapes in this book.
