What if animals and plants knew math, just like you? Would leaves fall in patterns? Would whales enter a race? In Counting on Fall, the first title in the Math in Nature series by award-winning author Lizann Flatt, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of number sense and numeration. The engaging -What if?- format of this informational picture book is sure to delight five- to seven- year- olds.
Each of the four books in the Math in Nature series will cover one season of the year and one area of the math curriculum. Colorful, cut- paper collage art uniquely evokes the natural world, while two levels of text -- one a lyrical story, the other asking children to problem- solve -- bring the reader to a full understanding of the math concept being covered.
