It’s another busy day for Stanley and Little Woo as they vacation and learn shapes!

Stanley’s Shapes is exactly what a concept board book should be.”  ―Shelf-Employed

Stanley and Little Woo are on vacation, and they’re also learning about shapes. Their suitcases are rectangles, their tent is a triangle, they fly kites in the shape of diamonds, and more! Shape concepts are presented as more than just examples—they’re in the context of a fun, simple story, which adds to the attraction.

This sturdy board book series, focused on early childhood education concepts, will appeal to Stanley’s youngest fans—toddlers, preschoolers, and fans of Lucy Cousins’ Maisy. It’s a great stepping-stone to William Bee’s beloved series of padded picture books featuring Stanley and his rodent friends as they explore jobs and careers, vehicles, daily routines, and what it means to be part of a community.
