Book review: Walter’s Wonderful Web, by Tim Hopgood, illustrated by Sara Palacios

Hopgood, Tim. Walter’s Wonderful Web. Illustrated by Sara Palacios. Farrar Straus Giroux, 2015, $16.99. ISBN 9780374303525. Unp.  Ages 4-8. P9 Q8

The spider Walter shows perseverance and determination as he struggles to weave webs that don’t get blown away by the wind. He finishes by creating a masterpiece that survives the wind and combines all the shapes.   The book has colorful and engaging pictures. At the end are engaging questions about shape identifications and the number of sides on each shape in the book.

Verdict: Although an excellent source for teaching different shapes, readers might need some help to understand the questions.
