"[V]isually striking. . . carefully assembled. . . [and] inspired by an Eric Carle aesthetic. . . [Circle Under Berry] possesses a pleasing rhythm and subtle rhymes, positively begging to be read aloud: 'circle next to berry / square by bear by sweet // blue up high / pig down low / yellow in between.' Satisfying, engaging, and sure to entertain the toddlers at whom it is aimed."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Using hand-painted paper to create brilliantly hued, shape-based forms that appear against a clean white backdrop, Higgins (Bikes for Sale) economically examines ways to observe color, shape, pattern, and position. . . . [D]rawing readers' attention while achieving real grace as the items resolve into origami-like forms. . . Higgins offers seeds of conversations about naming and classification."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"[A] striking exploration of shapes, colors, and patterns . . . The artwork is particularly distinctive, comprised of brightly hued, stylized shapes and objects created from cut-and-collaged, hand-painted papers digitally assembled on white backgrounds. . . . [Circle Under Berry is] an appealing choice for emerging readers [and] the emphasis on prepositions will aid English language learners as well."--Booklist Reviews
"[Circle Under Berry]opens the door for children to engage with color, geometry, and prepositions, too, just for good measure. And how could they resist, with a rhythmic text that makes use of such lush language; why look for yellow, green, and pink when you could find goldenrod, emerald, and magenta? A triumph of design and a beacon of possibility."-The Horn Book Magazine
"[S]parkling and ingenious . . . will become a nursery staple. . . . [Circle Under Berry] positively tingles."-The Wall Street Journal
