About the Book

Two comical creatures go crazy with graphs in an imaginative look at organizing information. Kids can learn all about bar graphs, pie charts, Venn diagrams, and more as a lizard and a frog explain each step of each graph. Full color.

Book Synopsis

Learn everything about graphs, charts, and how to organize information in this fun picture book introduction.

Follow two comical creatures as they go graph-crazy! Gonk the frog and his friend Chester have all kinds of questions-- do more of their friends like mud, or not? Who has the biggest feet? What color butterfly is most common?

In order to answer these questions, the two friends make all kinds of charts-- and so can you!

This funny look at graphs and charts introduces several major ways of organizing information-- bar graphs, pie charts, Venn diagrams, and more. With concrete, easy-to-understand examples and bright, cartoonish illustrations, The Great Graph Contest is a kid-friendly introduction to the basics of data visualization that will have you itching to make your own graphs!

An author's note expands on the different kinds of charts pictured in the story, and instructions on making your own graphs and charts are included.
