The Book

This delightful book is a celebration of math for  kids, everywhere!  

Olivia, an adorable little girl, wants to decorate a  birdhouse for the summer months.  She decides that the roof should be a pattern of stripes of many different colours.  She accomplishes her goal perfectly at first and then oh! oh! things go south... she messes up!  Although she deviates from her original plan she also discovers a wonderful life lesson... it's okay to make a mistake and be able to happily move forward once again.  

This book is about exploring patterns and about creative problem-solving.  Storytelling math highlights children using math in their daily endeavours as they play, build, and discover the world around them. 

Opportunities to engage in hands-on activities are a fun and easy way for kids ( and grown-ups ) to unitize math skills each and every day.  "A Beautiful House for Birds"  was developed in collaboration with math experts at STEM education nonprofit TERC, under a grant from the Heising-Simons Foundation.  

The illustrations are colourful, vibrant and engaging. I love the book's positive encouraging message and I highly recommend it.
