Today’s book is a non-fiction picture book titled Lifetime by Lola Schaefer via @chroniclebooks.  A lovely lapbook filled with simple numbers in nature, how many sets of antlers a caribou will have in its lifetime, how many holes a woodpecker will peck and how many baby seahorses one seahorse will birth.  From one to a thousand this book gradually builds in scale and is a simple, fascinating study perfect for ages 5+.  Feels particularly like a fabulous grandparent book to me!  I’ve loved it since I first saw it three years ago.

Lola Schaefer has a library of titles and resources under her belt as a teacher, writer and writing coach.  Learn more about her here.  Chronicle Kids Books is fun, quirky imprint with a treasure trove of unique kids books.  Check out their catalogue here if you like.
