Pigeon Math Book
Pigeon Math is Asia Citro’s first picture book. The narrator is trying to tell a story but the pigeons keep flying back and forth from the line disrupting the story of the narrator. It’s comical. It’s educational. And, it’s a super creative math-related book perfect for enjoying as a read-aloud and extending into further learning.
