Seeing Symmetry - a review

I'm on vacation this week, but wanted to point out Loreen Leedy's latest.

Leedy, Loreen. 2012. Seeing Symmetry. New York: Holiday House.

A teacher's dream, Seeing Symmetry is so much more than a book about symmetry.  It is the intersection of math, art and nature in a clearly illustrated book that is entertaining, participatory, and educational.  It's also correlated to 4th grade core curriculum standards for geometry (see Loreen Leedy's website). Notes, activities, math concepts and vocabulary are included as well.

More kids would like math if it were always presented like this.  Worth checking out!

Watch the video below, narrated by author/illustrator, Loreen Leedy, and read a detailed review @ Kirkus Reviews.
