EXPECTED RELEASE NOVEMBER 2022
An excellent starting point of any Numberland co-adventure, but also a stand-alone resource for teachers and parents:
This rhyming children’s picture book enables young readers to see the patterns and structures in numbers and shapes through the magical world of Numberland; a land where numbers come to life and have their own houses and gardens! The story and pictures inspire us to find mathematics in the world around us: Number Four has 4 braids in her hair and 4 flowers in her square garden… What else can you find?
Written by Barbara Schindelhauer and Mark Hansen, TBR Books (expected release Nov. 2022).
Testimonials from some early birds:
Enchanting, entertaining, and engaging! MY GARDEN IS A SQUARE is a “math-for-all” delightful tale of “Numberland’s” fundamental and essential entities. The numbers come alive via this visually-appealing story’s multiple representations. The book also poses good questions that organically provoke mathematical thought in children. A must-have early years book! (Jaspreet Sethi – Founder Math with a Smile, India)
An easy way to introduce children to the world of numbers and patterns. Bright and easy to follow, I’d highly recommend this book to help young children to start noticing numbers around them and to engage in all the patterns that can be seen (Debbie Kemish – Retired Director of International School in Australia and teacher of English language)
