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.

This interactive, poetic, and artful picture book series is an enticing way to introduce math to kids — they will laugh, use their imaginations, and learn through activities inspired by the books.

LIZANN FLATT has written many information books for children, including the Math in Nature series. A former editor of chickaDEE Magazine, her children’s writing has won many honors, including a Distinguished Achievement Award from The Association of Educational Publishers. She lives in Muskoka, Ontario.
