Praise for What is Math?:

"Jaunty rhymes introduce readers to many different answers to the titular question, the illustrations showing an array of children, diverse in terms of race and ability, exploring their world, attending school, and interacting with friends....A great way to show even the math-averse or math-phobic the many ways that math is hiding in their everyday lives. A solid definition of math that shows its ubiquity."—Kirkus
