Challenges young readers to think about numbers in more creative ways, introducing concepts through the use of animal fables and riddles.

Scholastic
From 1 to 10, these "lessons that count" are math magic for learning addition.

For children who have graduated from MATH FABLES, MATH FABLES TOO will help kids learn to count and, more important, lay the groundwork for addition. When children learn to group numbers at an early age, everything else -- place value, arithmatic, problem-solving -- flows naturally. These animal fables will also encourage kids to become more interested in science by building on their natural fascination with animals of the oceans, jungles, deserts, lakes, and backyards. Math and science -- a winning combination!

Fantastic book, along with Math Fables, for fostering numeracy and early math skills in preschoolers and young school age children. The kind of book that helps create kids who will have an intuitive grasp of math, so they can enjoy it and feel confident, rather than fear it! Highly recommend. Can't wait to read the rest of Tang's books.
