Terrance the Trapezoid just wants to fit in with all the other shapes. Circles, squares, and triangles can turn themselves into neat things like eyeballs, road signs, and teeth. But Terrance does not know what he can be. When Sammy the Circle, Sid the Square, and Tammy the Triangle notice the big frown on Terrance's face, the shapes decide to help. When they all work together, they realize they can each be a different part of a whole new shape! 'Terrance the Trapezoid' is a clever tale that encourages children to use teamwork, creativity, and acceptance to solve problems and welcome differences. Praise for Terrance the Trapezoid Terrance the Trapezoid shows us that math and creativity really can be friends, and that collaboration can create a better place for all of us, no matter what shape we're in. - Melanie Kaye, designer and educator My students were mesmerized by this story. Using the themes of geometry and cooperation, it is an essential approach to the visualization of art. - Sandi McCreadie, Thistlegarten Creative Arts Preschool
