In this innovative book, Emma Adb?ge encourages children to get outside, where they can have fun interacting with the natural world while learning math. Adb?ge has created twenty-two outdoor activities, organized by season. Through play, children will learn about numeracy and arithmetic, as well as math concepts such as shapes, time, greater/less than, even and odd numbers, patterns and grids. The activities have simple-to-follow instructions and are accompanied by adorable illustrations that provide clear visual demonstrations. The natural materials required --- stones, pinecones, snowballs, worms --- are easy to find in many environments. Supplementary spreads introduce the numbers 1 to 10 and further explore addition/subtraction and multiplication/division, with simplified explanations and illustrated examples. Studies have shown that learning outdoors helps kids retain information and skills, and that physically active children perform better in a variety of subjects --- including math. This book could be used alongside other math coursework all school year, since the activities have direct curricular applications. While the thrust of the book is math, there are also science lessons here, particularly regarding the properties of nature and how things change during the four seasons. Many of the activities can be done in pairs or groups, promoting teamwork and cooperation. A list of activities in the back matter indexes the activities and categorizes them by the math skills they develop.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3—AdBåge uses colorful and charming line illustrations to detail 36 outdoor activities involving counting, time, and arithmetic. As some of the projects detailed are not that far from the natural purview of kindergarten-aged children (cloud counting, sidewalk tic-tac-toe), the value of this title is for educators and parents who might need some out-of-the-box thinking to vary routine play. The "Free Form" activity provides the opportunity for a group of children to work together and discover new shapes. Each child holds onto a rope in one or two places, working together to form a triangle, a star, and a rectangle. In the index, the activities are categorized by the four arithmetic operations plus time, counting, odd/even numbers, and sorting. VERDICT This is a worthy addition to a school collection or a public library shelf for motivated parents and preschool teachers who strive to create a rich learning environment.—Amy Thurow, New Glarus School District, WI
