Storybooks present enjoyable, meaningful, and interactive math explorations to children and adults in Go Figure! – a national traveling exhibit that is open through July at the Brandon Community Library.
Go Figure! transforms charming children’s books into a kid-sized world where children and adults have fun exploring math with familiar characters such as Arthur, Frog and Toad, and the Three Bears. Each of the five colorful larger-than-life books in the exhibit includes a mat-related activity such as measuring, weighing, or sorting along with labels to guide parents. Featured books are Arthur’s Pet Business, The Doorbell Rang, The Quilt, Frog and Toad are Friends: A Lost Button, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
“Using familiar children’s books, the exhibit offers our community delightful experiences with simple math and demonstrates that math is learned naturally by the inventive, curious mind. Children age 2-7 years old and their parents or caregivers will enjoy the lively graphics and the exhibit and the related programs and activities,” said Alysia Boysen, Brandon librarian.
The Go Figure! traveling exhibit was made possible through a grant from the Brandon Community Foundation.
