This breezy story starts with Circle rolling, bumping into Triangle then popping, turning thereby into smaller circles that cause Square to sneeze a flurry of shapes — Diamond, Star, etc.. — that bounce into and bend Line. Eventually, Octagon has to break everyone up and Heart has to straighten Line and repair Circle. The illustrations are as simple as the story, playful and clear. It is clearly a book written to conform to the wishes of children, not how we wish children to be, but nonetheless adeptly communicates both geometry and personal responsibility.

At National Geographic, we know the only thing that can possibly match our passion for exploration is the limitless creativity and curiosity of a young mind. For that reason, we pride ourselves in providing children's books that are both educational and fun--the perfect thing to satisfy your child's yearning for knowledge. Our kids books are designed to be everything a young explorer could wish for. Written for young readers, our books will engage children and introduce them to new and exciting facets of their world, and the world beyond what they know. Written on topics as diverse as your child's interest, these educational books are certain to delight your child for years to come. Our world geography books will teach your child about places near and far, all from the comfort of your home. Your child might not be an actual explorer yet, but with these books, your child's imagination can travel the world.

Creating stories for the youngest book-lover is not child's play. The best books have similar traits. Life-affirming messages pitched appropriately for this audience, in a way that engages, while bringing out the best in an older reader. When it all comes together the result is a book that transcends age. We feel these are the best of the best. (Many of these are available as "board books.")
