As a children's librarian, I am constantly asked for recommendations for early literacy concept books like shapes, colors, numbers, letters, etc. One night as I worked with a mom to find great books on shapes, I realized that while there may be lots of shape books, not all of the shape books were GREAT! So, I rummaged through the shelves for the best books about shapes, and in turn, I created this list of my favorite shape books - just for you! Enjoy!

September is Library Card Sign Up Month -- so if you don't have a library card, this list should inspire you to sign up for one here! It was a struggle to pick just a few picture books about the magical place that is a library! Most of these books play on the imagination factor that allows children (and adults) to dream and play in a new world through reading and books! We know that reading is awesome, and hopefully some of these reads will help you to find your way to the library!
