As young readers journey into the natural world, they will discover that numbers, patterns, shapes — and much more! — can be found in everyday plants and animals.

What if animals and plants knew math, just like us? Would snowflakes all fall from the same height in the sky? Would otters spread themselves evenly across lakes? Would groundhogs be aware of the date? In Sizing Up Winter, the third title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of time and measurement.

LIZANN FLATT has written many information books for children, including
the Math in Nature series. A former editor of chickaDEE Magazine, her
children’s writing has won many honors, including a Distinguished
Achievement Award from The Association of Educational Publishers. She
lives in Muskoka, Ontario.

ASHLEY BARRON is a Toronto-based illustrator who specializes in
cut-paper collage. Her award-winning illustrations have appeared in a
variety of magazines, children’s publications, websites, posters,
animations, and set designs. She has a deep appreciation for nature and
finds inspiration in the vast Boreal Forest.
