Georgia’s Bones by Jen Bryant

Most scholars agree that there are numerous benefits to using math oriented children’s books in the classroom. Georgia’s Bones is one of those books that one might say is tangentially related to math. Bryant tells the story of Georgia O’Keefe’s early fascination with shapes and spaces in the natural world (e.g., leaves, stones, bones), especially near her Wisconsin home.
