Kitabı gerçekten çok beğendim dili şiirsel soruları da güzel..Tasarımı kolaja benziyor üçüncü bir boyut katmış. Kitap aynı anda mevsime, boyutlara, hayvanlara değinmiş istediğiniz açıdan okuyabilirsiniz...

As young readers journey into the natural world, they will discover that numbers, patterns, shapes, can be found in everyday plants and animals. What if animals and plants knew math, just like us? Would snowflakes all fall from the same height in the sky? Would otters spread themselves evenly across lakes? Would groundhogs be aware of the date? In Sizing Up Winter , the third title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of time and measurement.

This is a great book for elementary kids who are learning math and seasons. Each page has activities and questions posed by the author which require critical thinking on the part of the reader. The illustrations are unique and the colors are vibrant.

interesting math questions incorporated into pretty collage pictures. definitively helps parents know how to dialogue about a book (or at least how to dialogue about these specific math concepts).

Great picture book/non-fiction for K - 2. Illustrations and fact page at the end are similar to Steve Jenkins' work.
