Shapesville Book Donations

With money raised during our 2011 Walk to REbeL, we purchased 150 copies of the book Shapesville by Andy Mills and Becky Osborn for all elementary schools in the Blue Valley, Olathe, and Shawnee Mission school districts as well as the Johnson County Public Libraries.

Shapesville promotes positive body image by depicting a small town where five friends of various shapes, sizes, colors, and talents celebrate what makes each of them unique. Simple, rhyming verse, bold, playful illustrations of basic shapes and colors, and endearing characters show that ‘It’s not the size of your shape or the shape of your size, but the size of your heart that deserves first prize.”

REbeL members are available to provide a story time for children including a short discussion of the book and its meaning and message. To schedule a story time, please contact Dr. Laura Eickman at or Lea Daum at
