I liked this book for the sole purpose that it teaches multiplication and the concepts behind it, something that took my a while to get while I was in school. Not only are there pictures of the multiplication going on, but there are also equations that go along with the picture to help all learners. I would definitely use this book when trying to get my students excited about multiplication. ( )

It is time for the bats to have a parade while the rest of the animal kingdom watches in. As we progress through the book they go through multiplication with square numbers from 1^2 to 10^2 with some addition at the end. It got to be quite a lot of bats in this parade, so you better not be afraid! ( )

This was a good book, not one of my favorites but it had a great concept. It would be great for introducing multiplication to a younger reader and how the bats increase each time.

"Up marched the saxophones,
all 25 --
sopranos and altos
they come five by five"

The creators of "Bat Jamboree," which "School Library Journal" called "a witty combination of counting book and theatrical experience," are proud to introduce -- 385 marching band bats!From the drum majorette, who marches 1 X 1, to the sousaphones striding 10 X 10, these bats march in multiples to the tune of Kathi Appelt's snappy text and Melissa Sweet's boisterous illustrations.

On a midsummer's night the Marching Bat Band makes a rare appearance, its members grouped in formations that demonstrate multiplication from two times two up to ten times ten.
