Double Play!: Monkeying Around with Addition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brrriiiing! Recess time! Little chimps Jill and Jake find more than just their favorite games in the schoolyard today. They also discover the important mathematical concept of doubling, or adding a number to itself. Easy to learn and fun to memorize, doubling is a valuable problem-solving tool that helps kids prepare for multiplication. A must-have addition to any math-themed picture book library, Double Play makes this arithmetic lesson as welcome as recess.

Review:

"In this counting book about doubling numbers, monkeys Jill (in pink overalls) and Jake (in stripes) find all sorts of applications for math on the playground: 'With just their knees,/ they grip the bars./ They're upside-downside/ circus stars. 2 knees + 2 knees = 4 knees.' Along with their animal classmates, they take part in games like four square and jump rope ('Their jumping makes/ a rhythmic sound,/ while friends turn ropes/ that slap the ground. 3 kids + 3 kids = 6 kids'). Franco's rhymes swing effortlessly along with the animals' play, giving the simple addition lesson read-aloud appeal. Ages 4 — 8. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
