What in the World?


By Nancy Raines Day

This doesn’t come across as a “math” book, but it is (kind of like disguised vegetables :). A lot of “math” picturebooks have sort of ugly pictures, very flat and uninspiring (what impression does that give you of math?!). But the pictures in here are really nice as the author draws on nature to come up with sets. We had fun on our first read-through, trying to guess what in nature the author would come up with for each number—most often we were wrong!
