A book about geometry that is fun, understandable and makes “plane” sense! The Prideful Parallelogram, breaks down the attributes of parallelograms through a humorous main character who learns the value of humility, friendship and togetherness. Perfect for the elementary classroom, this book is jam packed with key geometric terms and easily helps students differentiate between the various parallelograms.

In the story, Parallelogram is infatuated with himself. He thinks he is the only two-dimensional shape with his exact features and refuses to indulge any other shape’s suggestions to the contrary. Square and Rhombus both try to convince him that they, too, are parallelograms, but he ignores their persuasive drawings and descriptions. After Rectangle comes to him, the doubt finally begins to cloud his arrogance and he sees the truth. In the end, he admits that the other shapes are, in fact, parallelograms and he invites them to join him in his regular Boast-A-Thon, where they celebrate their uniqueness together. A great story about geometry, but also about acceptance.
