Why is Jonathan's Number Party so important?
Jonathan's Number Party was commissioned by the owners of Eyeseeme bookstore in St. Louis, Missouri to address the gap in the representation of children of colour and those with disabilities in children’s literature. As you can see in the infographic, children with disabilities are not even included in the survey! Check out this article for more information.
In addition, the book is completely hand illustrated by the author, and if you look closely you can see that numbers are incorporated into each character. Teacher's notes and tips are included along with the visual representation of addition and subtraction on every page!
