Hands-on activities and elementary math concepts that relate to simple geometry and differentiating, naming, and combining shapes expand this clever story about creative problem solving. A gust of wind blows Frog's hat off her head—and it's stuck under Elephant's big bottom. Elephant is hungry, and he won't budge until Frog feeds him delicious foods that have unusual shapes. She brings him a round orange, a triangular sandwich, and a rectangular piece of chocolate. But elephant still won't move his bottom. Will Frog ever get her pretty hat back?


"An effective choice for developing shape recognition mixed with some salty fun." —Kirkus Reviews

"This book would make a great addition to any classroom library." —Bergers Book Reviews
