this plus that: life’s little equations

I was ordering math books on amazon (sorry Oscar) and noticed Jen Corace had a few new books I hadn’t seen before so I of course had to get them. I got Little Oink (so cute!) and holy moly, my new most favorite childrens book ever… This Plus That: Life’s Little Equations by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jen Corace. Have you seen this book?!

the cutest concept ever + the most gorgeous illustrations = perfect!!


how adorable are these two? and can you see the umbrella on the other page. kills me.

yes + no = maybe

anything + sprinkles = better. look at smiling fruit and cupcakes. and the colors.


every page is adorable and perfect. and the subjects: art, music, family, friendship. the whole book is just absolutely beautiful. I feel so lucky to get to read it to my kids.

    Thanks for posting these kinds of things. I don’t have any mom-friends so I don’t get the word of mouth on kid books. I get bored with the same old books, so anything new is welcome!

    Thanks for the heads up! I’ve read Little Pea and that’s all. Now a bunch are on hold at the library. 🙂
