My son is obsessed (that is actually a bit of an understatement) with numbers and this book is perfect for him. City by Numbers by Stephen T. Johnson is all about finding numbers hidden away in the everyday. Gorgeous images of the urban landscape and its details contain camouflaged numbers to discover. Have you ever seen the 4 in the Brooklyn Bridge? Some numbers are harder to see than others but the challenge spurs my son on. Next time you go outside windows will become 11s and branches will curve into 9s.
