This book would help students with their addition. Would be great for a math class for review. The driver counts how many animals pass by here in trucks. ( )

This book is about how tucker jill and her dogs run into many animals that have a surprise place to end up. There is something special about how the animals come as they drive by. This can be integrated into a math lesson and be used to talk about animals. This can be used to talk about the importance of how animals should be treated and how they work in our ecosystem.

This book is definitely an easy read for kindergartners. This book is about a truck driver who sees all these animals pass by her as she's driving her truck. It has easy addition problems for the kids to do as the reading goes along. This book is an introduction to addition. I think this book is very helpful because it shows the student the equation to the problem.

This is a cute book where the author using animals to count and to keep students interest he using a simple rhyming pattern students can easily follow. Good for preK-1 for introducing math and working on counting in the classroom.
