Research Notes
“Even though this book is short and simple, I was really struggling with the material. One morning, I woke up with the title in my head. Then everything just fell into place.”
Graphs features a class trip to the zoo, where the children track what they observe through graphs and charts. Each spread has a paragraph or two of simple text facing a full-color photograph. Ideal for demonstrating mathematical skills in real-life settings, these books are sure to appeal to young learners.”
