    This is a fun STEAM story where children interact with the pages to solve math problems at a picnic Some of the questions are identifying shapes, picking the kite with the longest tail, counting the right number to stepping stones ove the pond, and sharing an even number of sandwiches with everyone eating I m looking forward to reading this with some of my preschoolers, I think they will enjoy t...

    I picked up The Picnic Problem by Jonathan Litton largely due to the fact that it was labeled as a STEAM book, one meant to promote the learning and understanding of a subject within that particular set of fields While I d love to see one that focused on technology, it was still wonderful to see a book that promoted math work and learning for young children in a fun and engaging sort of way Giving various math problems for the kids to do, from counting to determining shapes, adding, and even multiplication.I deeply appreciate the purpose of this book and I believe that it accomplishes its goal fairly well All of the problems are perfect for early learners and the sort of scavenger hunt theme that the story takes on opens up the opportunity to not only find oneself intrigued as to where it will lead but also engaged in solving the mystery Though the mystery can be quite obvious to those who can infer from the title, I feel like it work...

    This is a great book for introducing extremely basic math concepts to early learners The children in this series follow a trail of clues Each clue has them practice a different early learning skill, such as counting to find the difference between two sets of items, identifying shapes, determining length in terms of which thing is longer than the other , and very basic addition skills This book is fun and useful, and it would be excellent to use with pre K in a STEM STEAM based storytime or classroom setting It would be easy to pair up with other early learning activities There s also a section at the e...

    Originally published on my blog Nonstop Reader The Picnic Problem is a new book in the STEAM stories series Written by children s book author Jonathan Litton and illustrated by Magal Mansilla, it s 24 pages and full color Published on Quarto s QEB imprint, it was released 18th Oct 2018 and is available in hardcover, paperback and ebook formats.I ve been a vocal advocate most of my life for STE A M education The earlier we get future generations really fired up about science and technology, the better Most kids are avid explorers and experimenters For most kids, all we as adults and educators need to do is introduce them to the ideas and get out of their way This book is engaging, written in fun rhyme with colorful illustrations It progresses with puzzles that build on one another to find clues and move along to the next step The book isn t strident, didactic, or preachy ...

    This is a fun look at maths concepts for young children With a simple story and bright pictures learning to a picnic there are many puzzling rhymes to solve along the way, with an explanations of the solutions and steps to solve the problems Introduced in the style of a treasure hunt Max and Suzy head off to a picnic solving challenges along the way Children can be encouraged to solve the clues before the story progresses and shows them the solutions The bright colours will quickly engage young children and I would not hesitate to use this story to encourage children to show an interest in maths.I wo...
