As young readers journey into the natural world, they will discover that numbers, patterns, shapes — and much more! — can be found by observing everyday plants and animals.

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.

Editor reviews

I was so excited to receive this book and take it to my classroom. I used this book for several math mini-lessons this fall. I really liked how there were simple math concepts that flowed right along with pieces of our curriculum. Children were able to problem solve which kept them engaged in the book and in the lesson.

I'm looking forward to what comes next in the Math in Nature series.

Great for Math
