Description

Square, Triangle, and all the other shapes each think they’re perfectly perfect for a special job at the library. Line is literally imperfect—broken and chipped by the long journey to the library. But Line has a quiet determination and fierce resilience that is unmatched. It turns out that being perfectly imperfect is just the right job qualification!

Laura Purdie Salas weaves together themes of self-worth, self-awareness, and sense of belonging in this inspiring picture book. Combine Laura’s lively story with Alice Caldarella’s energetic illustrations and you have a fresh twist on shapes that you will want to read over and over again!

For ages 5-9.
