Rakestraw Books presents Monica Wesolowska & "Leo + Lea" at local schools

Monica Wesolowska, Leo + Lea

We at Rakestraw Books love Monica Wesolowska's debut picture book, Leo + Lea, and are proud to bring her to local schools! Leo + Lea is a beautiful celebration of friendship, math, and art that honors different ways of seeing and being in the world.

About Leo + Lea:

Young readers will love counting the number of words per page and discovering how they echo the Fibonacci Sequence, a mathematical series in which each number is the sum of the previous two: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and so on to infinity! Text and art are masterfully conceived and constructed to reflect Leo's love of numbers. Even the color scheme in the striking illustrations follows a mathematical progression, bringing an underlying order and tranquility to the story. The mesmerizing symmetry of this fascinating and compulsively playable game of addition can also be found in the natural world and is an intriguing metaphor for the interconnectedness of all things.
