As a family decides they need vacation they use math concepts to help determine where to go.
Everyone wants something different. Helps show how math is used every day.

This book is for ages 6 and up and it is useful for effective questioning. Children can relate to the book because of the business of family members. We can ask about their own family, how busy they really can be and if they have get to go on vacations with their family. This book is helpful for asking questions about family if their family ever decides to go on vacation.

This busy family needs a vacation, but they don't know where to go. Mom and Dad want peace and quiet. Grandma wants to go somewhere hot. Fluffer wants to go somewhere that pets can go, too! Not to worry, our pig-tailed narrator gathers data and makes a chart to help determine the perfect vacation destination. Learning math is fun when a vacation is the answer!

This is a Level 2 MathStart book, which is perfect for kids ages 6 and up. The MathStart series uses funny stories and colorful art to show kids that they use math every day, even outside of the classroom! Each book features an activity guide to have fun with the math concepts presented in the story.

This book is about a boy who's family is always busy and always in a rush. The young boy decides that his Mom, Dad, Grandmother, his brother, Charlie, and their cat, Fluffer, need to go on a vacation, but he just can not decide on the right place. He decides to make a chart to help him come up with some ideas. After asking his family members what their opinion is, he knows that it must be some place that is warm, near home, fun, and somewhere Fluffer can come along. After narrowing it down by his chart, the family decides that the best place to go is their very own back yard. This book is helpful in a way to show children a type of chart that helped the young boy make their decision on a vacation place a lot easier. ( )

In this story, a family wants to go on vacation but they don't know where to go. To figure it out, the daughter decides to poll her family and make a graph to see where everyone wants to go. I like this book because it relates math concepts and reading. This book is good for primary students who are just learning to read and who are learning how to make charts and graphs.
