Great news for both Counting on Naamah and Zhen Yu and the Snake!
There’s a whole lot of numbers in 2 Books/ 3 Listings in 31 Days/ 31 Lists so this first bit of news adds up.
Counting on Naamah has made it onto Betsy Bird’s 31 Days/ 31 Lists, in the School Library Journal, for 2023 Math Books for Kids. Here’s what she had to say: Ah! Another book for the Why Hasn’t Someone Thought of This Before category! To start of with, why hasn’t anyone turned the Noah’s Ark story into a math picture book before?… As it stands, it’s a pretty darn good combination of classic tale and mathical mathiness.”
Counting on Naamah was also on another of Betsy Bird’s 31 Days/ 31 List for Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, and Religious Tales! ”
And also appearing on the 31 Days/ 31 List for Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, and Religious Tales is Zhen Yu and the Snake which she calls a smart update of an old tale.
