About the Book

Educational research has shown the significance of children learning to recognize numbers, their spelling, and simple arithmetic facts from early childhood and into the beginning years of formal education. Knowing that his grandchildren were involved in virtual education as early as the age of four, Dr. Bowman started writing and illustrating stories for this age group around the theme of mathematics. This book is an outgrowth of those early projects. Children, parents, and teachers will enjoy the marriage of a fictional story along with the presentation of number facts. Parents and teachers who are concerned about helping their children to live in a multicultural world will appreciate the varied ethnicities of Bowman's characters, too.

About the Author

Richard Bowman and his wife, Elsie, have four adult children and now ten grandchildren. He has enjoyed the many opportunities this has given him to read to kids as they grow up. As a retired teacher (professor of physics) and science demonstrator in several elementary schools, Dr. Bowman is enlivened by interacting with children as they learn science and mathematics. He also uses his storytelling and illustrating skills in his avocational role as a Christian minister.
