Low-tech, At-Home Learning: Counting With Critters

If you think about it, there are dozens – if not hundreds – of ways to interact with a picture book. Exploring, discussing, and comparing details in the art are some of those ways.

The art of illustrator Leo Timmers is loaded with discoverable details. Just flip through a copy of my books All Through My Town and Busy Builders, Busy Week! to see what I mean.

Here’s one way to turn those details into a fun math and science activity.

And while you don’t need my book Busy Builders, Busy Week! in front of you to do this activity, it’s always a bonus if you do. You can buy it right here.

Or if you’d like to support your local independent bookstore, you can buy it here.

Have fun. Stay safe. And stay well.
