Every colorful page of Christopher Danielson’s children’s picture book, Which One Doesn’t Belong?, contains a thoughtfully designed set of four shapes. Each of the shapes can be a correct answer to the question: “Which one doesn’t belong?” Because all their answers are correct answers, students naturally shift their focus to justifications and arguments based on the shapes’ geometric properties.
