Shaping up summer  Cover Image Book Book

Shaping up summer / written by Lizann Flatt ; illustrated by Ashley Barron.

Flatt, Lizann, (author.). Barron, Ashley, (illustrator.).


As young readers journey into the natural world, they discover that numbers, patterns, shapes, and much more! These can be found in everyday plants and animals. What if animals and plants knew math, just like us? Would spiders draw pictures in their webs? Would narwhals sort blocks of ice by shape? Would insects know what's above and what's below? In Shaping Up Summer, the final title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of geometry, symmetry, and spatial sense.
