About the Book

The beauty of mathematics can be found everywhere, from cooking in the kitchen to playing in the garden. Look, Math is Fun!, follows a little girl as she discovers the wonder of math in nature.

She gains an understanding of geometry through a variety of fruit shapes. She learns how math can help her learn to solve puzzles. She grasps the idea of probability by watching the flowers and the animals. She begins to see patterns in the garden.

This rhyming picture book for children presents a fun journey through the outdoors, shows the many ways a wide range of math and number systems are represented in nature, and describes how enjoyable learning can be.
