This book was also part of the material for our aquarium unit. However, it's really not appropriate for pre-schoolers. They like looking at the pictures and counting with it on their own, but the counting concepts involved are too advanced for the average three- or four-year-old. When your kids are learning multiplication for the first time it might come in handy.

This book is INGENIOUS! It is a concept number book that looks at numbers through the number of feet that certain creatures have. It teaches children not only the number, but adding and even multiplying on a basic level. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and I plan on having it in my library at home and my classroom library.

This book covers counting by tens, multiplying by tens and skip counting up to ten. It also can be used to show multiplication mixed with addition.I loved this book. It can be used at several grade levels to introduce and reinforce several math concepts.I read this to a third grade math class and they were very caught up in this book. Every student was participating and engaged. They loved the pictures and enjoyed skip counting and created several math problems using the pictures on the page. It cleanly illustrates how multiplication and skip counting is faster than counting by ones and addition. They asked me to read it again at the end of the day.
