Description - Maths in Nature: Sizing Up Winter by Lizann Flatt
Journey into the natural world and discover that numbers, patterns and shapes can be found by observing everyday plants and animalsWhat if animals and plants knew maths, 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, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of time and measurementMaths in Nature is a lovely four book series, which explores seasonal and natural beauty through maths concepts, which are made engaging with energetic and colourful paper collage illustrations, poetic language and thoughtful questions. Each book also includes nature notes at the end, which give more information about the animals and plants featured in the seasonal scenes. Colourful, cut- paper collage art uniquely evokes the natural world, while two levels of text - one a lyrical story, the other asking children to problem-solve - bring the reader to a full understanding of the maths concept being covered. The engaging "What if?" format of these informational picture books is sure to delight five- to seven-year-olds.

Lizann was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She's the author of over 12 nonfiction books and numerous short stories and poems. Her picture book "Let's Go! The Story of Getting from There to Here" was named the 2009 TD Grade One Giveaway title, which means the book was given to every grade one child in Canada-nearly 500,000 kids.

When she's not writing, Lizann gardens, bakes, works as a part-time library circulation clerk, and photographs the flora and fauna in her backyard.
