It all started with the book Friends of Many Shapes and Colors."All the colorful shapes were wonderful friends. They played games together in the spring, summer, winter and fall. One day the shapes noticed that they were all different and started teasing each other. This made all the shapes sad and lonely. Then the shapes agreed that they did not need to look alike to be friends. This book carries an anti-bullying message as it teaches children about diversity. The colorful, playful images will delight the young children as they learn about shapes. This book is a must for every classroom of young children, and every household."The pictures were so lively, the shapes had such captivating expressions, the message was so timely and the bold colors made it pop.
