Go Figure!

An Exhibit Introducing Young Children to Simple Math through Familiar Books

Through children's literature, the traveling exhibition
Go Figure! brings the exciting world of math and its everyday uses to children two to seven years old and their parents. The exhibition includes representations from many children's books, including
Arthur's Pet Business by Marc Brown,
The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins,
The Quilt by Ann Jonas,
Frog and Toad are Friends: A Lost Button by Arnold Lobel, and
Goldilocks and the Three Bears illustrated by James Marshall. Exhibit text is in both English and Spanish.

The exhibit was produced by the
Minnesota Children's Museum (MCM), the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, and the
Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of ALA. Major funding for the exhibition is provided by the
National Science Foundation (NSF) with additional support from
