An earlier edition oddly missing the word “math” in the subtitle.

Very sturdy, well-put-together shapes book that follows the usual formula (here’s the shape, in this case textured for added pre-lit fascination, and then here are some examples of things in that shape). Nothing new, and some of the choices seem odd to me in that they’re not things you will always find in that shape (cookies, for example come in all shapes and sizes), but for the most part it’s solid stuff that will hold up to baby manhandling quite well. ***
