This whimsically enjoyable children’s book is a delightful immersive play on numbers. The text for each character is color coded which makes it ideal for shared reading with other students, teachers or parents.


This highly entertaining children’s book is recommended for kids Grades 3-6.

“Six the Scientist: Numbers Are Your Friends” by Debbie Hickman is a children’s book that will help youngsters develop the love for numbers and reading as well as examining the value and satisfaction of asking thoughtful questions. This is a story that will raise children’s awareness of climate change, math(fractions), friendship, thinking outside the hexagon while being amused by the whimsical conversations between Six and Three.
After Six got tossed off the clock he was curious about how insects moved so he became an entomologist (Bug scientist). Eventually, this led to Six becoming curious about the impact of climate change on six different kinds of insects. His bees were his favorites, but eventually they started stinging him, and he didn’t like it all.
So he called his old clock friend, Three, who became his apprentice scientist. She enjoyed asking questions and making careful observations. Three, however, became tired of keeping track of the lab and wanted to take a break. Antarctica seemed to be the ideal spot, since there was only one type of insect there according to Six, but Three insisted there were actually two insects in Antarctica which annoyed Six very much.  
Antarctica was fascinating. They got to ask a researcher many questions, meet all six types of penguins, observe the ice falling off the glaciers, learn about climate change in Antarctica, take boats to the islands, and search for Midge, the one and only kind of bug in Antarctica.

Six feels he’s got a huge brain, and it makes Three feel intimidated-but only for a while.
Numerous motivating ideas for teaching/learning are available in the appendix of the book.

About the Author
Debbie Hickman was inspired to write this book after learning that serious mathematicians often referred to numbers as their “friends.” Einstein’s famous question, “What time is it really?” blended her thinking into the basis for The Exasperated Clock. Also, when she asked her teenage son one day what a teacher should do for math in elementary school, he quickly responded, “Keep the magic alive.” And of course, while teaching in the States and around the world the reaction from her students inspired her to keep telling and writing more stories. Debbie grew up in northern Idaho and is now living in Sierra Vista, Arizona where she plans to write a book about how each number evolved in their “life” beyond the clock. So far, she has published 3 more books:  What’s Up, Seven?  The Inside Story of Ten and Six the Scientist. Debbie Hickman wrote Six the Scientist to help students “follow their curiosity.” In other words, she wanted them to understand the power and satisfaction of asking a good question. Answering every question can wait. Also, she hopes this book could be an inspiration for students to become scientists which will be desperately needed with global warming on the horizon. The writing for each character is colored coded in order to make it easier for shared reading in the classroom or at home. She hopes this book will inspire lively discussions both at school and at home. Debbie lives in Sierra Vista, Arizona and has been a teacher in Arizona and several International schools (Kuwait, India, Bahrain, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Malaysia). She loves the creative freedom of having the numbers as characters. She plans to continue writing stories for the other NUMBERS who were tossed off the clock. She welcomes invitations to read her books and give presentations on writing to schools.
