This Is Not Another Maths Book
Readers are challenged to decide whether this is a maths book or an art book. Personally I come down on the side of art! Anna Weltman has done it again, effortlessly putting the STEAM into STEM, she has created a terrific follow up to her 2016 Educational Writers’ Award winning This is Not a Maths Book.
Attractive and tactile, with thick substantial pages that will stand up to a lot of wear, this beautifully designed book has been very carefully thought out. Each double page spread introduces a new math concept and creative project with informative text and easy-to-follow illustrated instructions. At the back of the book, templates for completing the projects are included and a glossary of technical terms makes it easy for the reader to build their knowledge of math concepts.
As the pendulum slowly swings away from the idea that the world wide web is all that kids need to access information and build knowledge, we have a superb reminder that knowledge building and creativity are found in the pages of a book, with hours of ‘hands on’ creative fun and ‘brain teasing’ challenge guaranteed by this smart art activity book.
Perfect for creative kids at home and in the classroom, and highly recommended as a gift book.
