Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is not really a book that stresses math concepts but it's an original poetry book that will interest many. We enjoyed it.
An innovative picturebook...creating an impression of the four seaons through poems written as mathematical equations! Kids who love poems, kids who love math...even kids who love cats will enjoy this picturebook. The art weaves you through the pages, as if you are experiencing the seasons along with the little girl and her sometime cat. The sleepytime ending is purrfect!
