Roman Numerals I to MM: Numerabilia Romana Uno Ad Duo Mila

Roman Numerals I to MM: Numerabilia Romana Uno Ad Duo Mila Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

His work is regularly selected for the Society of Illustrators', annual Original Art exhibition, and his illustrations are now being collected by the Dubuque Museum of Art.
