Isobel Adds It Up
“An imaginative read-aloud recommended for teachers wanting to connect literacy and math and for public libraries looking to upgrade their collection of girl-empowering STEAM books.”

School Library Journal, STARRED Review!

“Not only is it refreshing to read a story about a little girl who loves math, but it is also exciting to read a book in which a child learns to establish boundaries in a way that is kind and fair[...]An adorable story about friendship and learning how to state your needs."

Kirkus Reviews

"You’ll fall in love with Isobel immediately and enjoy her journey as she solves both her math homework and the mystery of what’s making so much noise next door!"
