Start the exploration of the number zero and its role by hearing its story from Zero herself. Upset that she doesn’t feature in the count and having failed to transform herself into a different number, Zero is trying to find her value and her place among the other numbers.
In the end, all the numbers are overjoyed to discover that together they can count much higher and Zero has found her purpose.
In addition to providing a starting point to counting beyond single digits and contemplating the relationships between numbers, the book also carries the important message that everyone has value and will find their place and their purpose within the group.
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
