What if animals and plants knew maths, 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, nature comes to life
to help children grasp concepts of geometry, symmetry, and spatial

Maths 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.
