As young readers journey into the natural world, they will discover that numbers, patterns, shapes — and much more! — 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.

About the Author:

Lizann Flatt is a former editor of chickaDEE Magazine and the author of The Nature Treasury and Let's Go! Her children's writing has won many honors, including a Distinguished Achievement Award from the Association of Educational Publishers. She lives in Muskoka, ON. Ashely Barron is a Toronto-based illustrator who specializes in cut-paper collage. Her award-winning illustrations have appeared in a variety of magazines, children's publications, websites, posters, animations, and set designs.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2–Using familiar animals such as cardinals, otters, and porcupines as well as the lesser-known snow fleas, musk oxen, and ptarmigans, Flatt takes readers on a mathematical, seasonal journey. Facts about the animals and the weather share space with measurement problems including distance, time, height, weight, length, area, and mass. The text, mostly in rhyming prose, and the accompanying math problems, which relate to the illustrations, can make for two separate reading experiences. Some sophisticated vocabulary (“capacity,” “analog”) makes this title better for adult/child sharing than independent reading. “Nature Notes” expand on the brief information about the animals highlighted in the text. Barron's full-page, cut-paper collages use a full palette of color and manage to instill subtle personality into the animals without sacrificing realism. Although most of the pictures show a snowy landscape, there is an acknowledgement that winter may look different depending on where one lives. CChildren who peruse the illustrations carefully and welcome the challenge of problem solving will enjoy this book.–Sara-Jo Lupo Sites, George F.
