Right from the start, Amy Krouse Rosenthal gives us equations that are anything but boring or normal. 1+1 does not just equal 2 here; it equals ‘us’! The delightful surprises keep coming with unpredictable yet true word equations about life.
Manners, exercise, ages, seasons, relationships—they’re all covered in the most fun of ways! The equations are life lessons—good and bad, happy and sad—all tied up in pretty, and touching, and silly, and fun word puzzles.
This Plus That is timeless (in the way of Dr. Seuss’ Oh the Places You’ll Go), and is perfect as a gift for any milestone occasion from the start of preschool to college graduation and beyond. “This Plus That shows again and again that life's total experience is always greater than the sum of its parts.”
all done + time to go = the end
