cute idea to practice math with kids. why didn't others like it? ( )

This is a good example of an informational book, but it also has plot and characters like realistic fiction. The stories all have math problems that have to be solved. The facts are easily distinguishable from the fiction of the stories and everything is up to date and accurate. The stories are all about events that could happen in real life and are believable. ( )

Informational fantasy (becuase of the personified animals and created creatures) for primary grade levels. The book has many silly story problems and math tasks for students to attempt. This is done with funny pictures and entertaining situations that will keep students interest. Media: mixed media with digital and pencil ( )

This is a fun book for the math lover in the family. The math problems start out simple and move quickly to more difficult problems that will probably require a pencil and paper to solve. This would be a fun book for a school classroom instead of the regular problem worksheet. ( )

I'm not sure what genera to classify this book as, so I'll invent one. I think this is a great mathematical book because it encourages students to count and perform math problems in order to move on to the next page. In the back of the book, there are extra questions for select pages that will give students extra challenges.
