We received this as one of the kids’ free books from some doctor appointment. This book is clearly free because the author has given up on creativity and possibly life in general. It starts out well

But then it deteriorates quickly

Because clearly clocks are the best representative of the square shape to easily confused babies and toddlers


It goes on to throw in cassette tapes because a generation who has never lived without iPods will definitely be familiar with cassette tapes. An iPod itself would surely not have been a better choice. That would make the book too dated.

Diamonds? Diamond shaped candies, of course.

Hearts? Heart-shaped soap from the 80s is just the thing!

Now, let’s just start making stuff up. Rings are a shape, right?

No need to do things like call things by their correct name. Let’s call these cylinders “tubes” just for fun.

All right, I’m running out of pages here. Pentagons, hexagons, and octagons are kind of complicated. Let’s go with “leaf” and “shell”.

And we’re done. Now that I’ve blogged about, I can get rid of it. It’s been driving me crazy for years, and I just needed to get it off my chest. Let the healing begin.

Surely, we can do better than this. What would you put on the square (or other) pages?

    So I just stumbled on your blog and I have to say this post had me in tears laughing. That book was fantastically terrible. Thanks for sharing.

    It truly, truly was. I’m glad you suffered through it along with me.
