This is a book I read to my students when we are learning about the 3D shapes sphere, cone, cylinder & cube. It's a simple & repetetive story that the kids pick up on quickly. It also helps kids understand the difference between flat shapes (square, circle, rectangle & triangle) and 3D shapes. If you are a preschool teacher and only teach basic shapes you can leave the 3D shapes pages out and the story still makes sense. Update: I have added a black and white reproducible copy of the book.
