Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a pig farm as his abacus, Geisert uses elements of a search and count game to bring Roman numerals to life in this match-concept book. Readers can count with Roman numerals that are equated with the correct number of piglets, and practice counting other items such as hot-air balloons, gopher holes, and more. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

With a farm of pigs as his abacus, Arthur Geisert uses elements of a search and count game to bring Roman numerals to life in this unintimidating math-concept book. First, the seven Roman numerals are equated with the correct number of piglets. Then the reader may practice counting other items—hot-air balloons, gopher holes, and more—as the remarkable adventure unfolds. (And yes, there are one thousand pigs in the etching for M!)

About the Author

Arthur Geisert lives with his wife Bonnie in a house they built themselves in a quarry in Galena, Illinois. Mr. Geisert finds artistic inspiration in pigs, the rolling valleys of Illinois, and the Mississippi River, all of which can be seen from the front porch of his house.
