Synopses & Reviews
Help Heloise add her dimes, nickels, and pennies to buy a hat at Madame Millie’s Millinery; tell time on the clock at the Tutti-Frutti Zoo; and calculate with Bertram the cost of his colossal birthday cake.
Clever text and imaginative art mesh to create playful, simple math problems right on target for ages 6—99 . . . anyone who loves the magic of numbers! Valorie Fisher has created fifteen miniature worlds, each showcasing an ingenious math problem (with more questions at the back of the book). In a starred review Publishers Weekly raved, “Math made fun? Problem solved.”
Believe it or not, once Bessie balanced a tower of 8 beets. But today, when she tries to balance 8 beets . . . 3 fall. How many beets does Bessie balance today?
A clever text and imaginative art mesh to create playful, simple math problems right on target for ages 699 . . . anyone who loves the magic of numbers! Budding young mathematicians can help Heloise add her dimes, nickels, and pennies to see which hat in Madame Millies Hat Shop she can buy. Or they can tell time with Lulu at the Tutti-Frutti Zoo, where Lollipop Licking begins at 9:00 sharp.
