Description

Art + Arithmetic + Environmental Awareness=Graeme Base's latest masterpiece From the creator of the international best-sellers "Animalia, The Water Hole," and "Jungle Drums" Once again, beloved author Graeme Base introduces readers to a new world. And again, he interweaves the story with hidden images and mathematical problems (and solutions!), creating a book that can be read over and over, and at different levels for different ages. When Uno arrives in the forest one beautiful day, there are many fascinating and extraordinary animals there to greet him -- and one entirely unexceptional Snortlepig. Uno loves the forest so much, he decides to live there. But, in time, a little village grows up around his house. Then a town, then a city . . . and soon Uno realizes that the animals and plants have begun to disappear. "Uno's Garden" is a moving and timely tale about how we all unknowingly affect the environment around us, just by being there -- and how we can always learn from our mistakes and find ways of doing things better. It's an illuminating blend of storybook, puzzle book, and math book.

Customer reviews

My 3 and 4 year old love reading this book and exploring all the pages to find all the weird and wonderful creatures... the snagglebites and of course the snortlepig - we found him on the last page - yay :-) Highly recommend this book, even at their level they now have an understanding of how buildings and people affect the environment, but in such a fun and inspiring way.show more
