A boy and his mother go for a walk along the seashore and find all sorts of shapes. There's a starfish shaped like a star, a pebble that's an oval and a jellyfish that's a circle. A combination of fascinating photos and delightful artwork show the variety of shapes that can be found. * Red A/Band 2A books offer predictable text with familiar objects and actions, combined with simple story development. * Text type - A simple recount. * The shapes are repeated on pages 14 and 15 for children to recall and discuss.
