Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Subtitled "Dr. Seuss's Surprising Word Book," The Shape of Me and Other Stuff certainly lives up to its billing. In this delightful book, first published in 1973, kids are encouraged to ponder shapes they may never have considered before: "Just think about the shape of beans and flowers and mice and big machines!" Dr. Seuss's illustrations are in silhouette (for the purpose of accenting the outlines of figures), but are nonetheless up to par with his usual wacky, amusing style. Soaring well beyond the mundane arena of circles, triangles, and squares, here we are challenged to consider "the shape of camels … the shape of bees and the wonderful shapes of back door keys!" Kids will love the silly rhymes and funny pictures, and parents will appreciate this original take on the largely untapped world of shapes. (Baby to preschool)

Pressestimmen

"This wacky, rhyming exploration of the concept of shapes will be welcomed by beginning readers."--Instructor.

Format: Pappbilderbuch
One of the most difficult problems that many beginning readers have is to notice those pesky little differences between letters (like b and d, and q and p). Many children don't focus that much and get a general impression of a shape when looking at a letter or a group of letters. This interesting beginning reader helps you child to "see" the benefits of studying detail more closely.

The book is primarily a series of solid shapes (mostly black on white) set off with bright colors used in some shapes, as backgrounds for others, and as rectangles around words. Each one is a different item. Some of the many items silhouetted include a bug, balloon, bed, bike, beans, flowers, mice, big mahines, elephants, ships, teapots, water dripping, bird cages, peanuts, pineapple, noses, grapes, glasses, scissors, the various shapes that gum can be pulled into, smoke, marshmallows, fires, mountains, roosters, horses, tires, camels, bees, back door keys, spider webs, clothes, garden hose, mug, imaginary beings (like a BLOGG), trombone, fish, whale and a frog. This is not all, but it is more than half.

As you can imagine, a young child will be able to identify very few while an older child will get almost all of them. Not all of the profiles have words associated with them in the text.

As a result, this book should be read in different ways at different stages of development. For example, two year olds will identify more objects if they get a hint from you. Also, if you child likes sounds, you could make a sound like the object for your clue.

For an older child, you can also work together to spell the names of the shapes that are not in the text. For someone about to graduate from the book, you could try creating some rhymes with the shapes that are not mentioned.

I don't recommend this book as a beginning shapes book. Most of the illustrations are basic black. I love Dr. Seuss, but this book is very boring. My 7-1/2 month old son doesn't care for this book as much as he enjoys "Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?" and other Dr. Seuss books.

This book has been a favorite of my 22 month old daughter since she was 3 months! It is a lively, fun book that is classic Seuss. I would definetly recommend it as a first book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practice in Noticing Small Differences in Outline Shapes 13. Februar 2001
Von Donald Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Pappbilderbuch
One of the most difficult problems that many beginning readers have is to notice those pesky little differences between letters (like b and d, and q and p). Many children don't focus that much and get a general impression of a shape when looking at a letter or a group of letters. This interesting beginning reader helps you child to "see" the benefits of studying detail more closely.

Each one is a different item. Some of the many items silhouetted include a bug, balloon, bed, bike, beans, flowers, mice, big mahines, elephants, ships, teapots, water dripping, bird cages, peanuts, pineapple, noses, grapes, glasses, scissors, the various shapes that gum can be pulled into, smoke, marshmallows, fires, mountains, roosters, horses, tires, camels, bees, back door keys, spider webs, clothes, garden hose, mug, imaginary beings (like a BLOGG), trombone, fish, whale and a frog.

For an older child, you can also work together to spell the names of the shapes that are not in the text. For someone about to graduate from the book, you could try creating some rhymes with the shapes that are not mentioned.
The book itself is simple to read, and has a typical Dr. Seuss rhyming scheme.
The key lessons are summarized as:
"Everything comes in different shapes."
"No shapes are ever quite alike."
There is also nice encouragement for your child to feel special, for having a unique shape. That's a nice tie-in to the concept of encouraging your child to notice the small differences that help in reading. This point is brought home in the end when the child narrator says, "I say, 'HOORAY for the shapes we're in!'"
This book will be of most value for a child who is starting to have some success in identifying letters, so although this is a beginning reader . . . it's not the first reader you should use.
After you have enjoyed this book, you might also do some art projects in which your child picks out items that she or he wants you to cut out. You could paste them onto a card along with the item's name, and create your own flash cards for words you child wants to learn!
Notice the small things, so you can see the big picture!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of shapes and great Dr. Seuss rhymes in this sturdy board book. 2. Januar 2006
Von The Invisible Pam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Pappbilderbuch
Although everything is shown in silhouette, there is plenty of color and action and my kids (boy and girl; now 3 and 5) have always like it. There are herds of elephants, steaming machines, flowers, critters and more.

As the first spotlight reviewer did a good job of summarizing the assortment of critters and things that one can find I won't say more.

But in regards to the use of silhouettes instead of pictures or detailed line drawings at least one reviewer has said that they didn't like them. But I think they miss the point. The book is about *shapes* and how much you *can* identify without the `advantage' of a detailed picture. And looking at the silhouette and identifying the item/creature is part and parcel of the mental exercise, just like the rhythm and rhyme of the story. If you used pictures you'd hardly learn anything about `shapes' would you.

No, the use of shadows is just right for exercising young minds. For reaching for that Aristotelian abstract (LOL) of what is `skunk'. And it is amazing how even the littlest of people can tell a skunk from a cat even with Seuss' odd artwork.

Five Stars. 19 pages of fun for boys and girls. This sturdy boardbook is a good read-aloud that stretches the imagination.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An interesting experiment from Dr. Seuss 27. Januar 2001
Von Michael J. Mazza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In "The Shape of Me and Other Stuff," Dr. Seuss experiments with an artistic approach that is very different from that of his best-known work. This book teaches about shapes, and the illustrations consist entirely of silhouettes of various items: people, elephants, boats, keys, etc.
The shadow-like illustrations are accompanied by rhymes in the familiar Seussian style: "Peanuts and pineapples / noses and grapes. / Everything comes in different shapes." While the book is educational and entertaining, I felt that the silhouettes-only art lacked some of the wacky charm of the full Seussian illustration technique. Nevertheless, I recommend "The Shape of Me and Other Stuff" as a fun addition to the family or classroom library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen When your little one is ready to move beyond circles, squares and triangles... 26. Januar 2014
Von Grandma Zizzy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
... this book is a terrific way to explore many more shapes in this big old world! While this book does have various colors on the pages, the focus is on shapes, and it was a great idea by Theodor Geisel to draw the items in SILHOUETTE to allow children to focus on those shapes without the distraction of facial expressions, multi colors within each item, etc. The shapes are all pretty much "normal" items, with a whimsical, Seuss-ish creation thrown in here and there. It ends with encouraging kids to appreciate the shape of their own bodies - "Of all the shapes we MIGHT have been... I say, 'HOORAY for the shapes we're in!'" The simple words and rhymes complement the art and make for enjoyable reading.

It's been such a wonderful opportunity for me to babysit my two grandsons, now having the ability (and time) to share in their daily development in a more focused way than I was able to do with my own two grown sons, since I worked outside of the home. I've found myself pulling out some of my mother's old "tricks" when it comes to playtime, and this book reminded me of when she'd sit a lamp on the floor, take the lampshade off and turn out the lights, so that we could see our silhouettes on the wall and have fun making different shapes with our hands, doing silly dances or poses - everything "old" is "new" again with my grandsons! When our younger grandson's first Christmas rolled around, he was just 9 months old - since we'd already accumulated an overload of toddler toys for our older grandson that he would inherit, Grandpa & I decided to make his gifts the beginning of a complete collection of Dr. Seuss books. It's really worked out well, because the older one (4 year age difference) was able to immediately enjoy the "Beginner Books" series (age 4-8) , and our younger grandchild (now 22 months) has graduated from board books to this hardcover "Bright and Early Books" series, cleverly labeled as being "for Beginning Beginners" (age 3 & under).

There are a dozen Dr. Seuss books in this series, and "The Shape of Me and Other Stuff" was the sixth. In case you're interested, the other books in the series are: "The Foot Book", "The Eye Book", "Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?", "In A People House", "Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!", "The Pop-Up Mice of Mr. Brice", "There's a Wocket in My Pocket!", "Great Day for Up", "Would You Rather Be a Bullfrog?", "Hooper Humperdink...? Not Him!", and "The Tooth Book".
