Incredible book for the young animal lover and learning how math is a very useful tool to study animals and other patterns. A couple of word problems in the end solidify the learning in a fun and engaging way. Illustration are equally incredible, cultivating a deeper appreciation for the bounty and beauty of the natural world.
