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.
