About the Featured Book:

Snowman - Cold = Puddle

Poetry + Math + Science = A new way of looking at spring

Math meets metaphor in this eye-opening exploration of spring. Each clever equation is a tiny, perfect poem that prompts readers to look at the ordinary and see the miraculous. Can you look at an egg in a nest and see a jewelry box? How are sunlight and heat like an alarm clock? Solve the equations and read the lively sidebars that reveal the science behind the signs of spring.
