A non-fiction book to help young readers learn Addition and Subtraction in a fun and easy step by step way. Readers are guided along by a cartoon mouse and a cartoon version of the author as they introduce a variety of methods for learning the same concept, math games, and fun tricks. Lots of cartoon illustrations throughout.
This is a fantastic book for a parent or tutor to use with a child struggling with math. Its presentation is fun and appealing. I love that the author uses lots of different ways to teach similar concepts, so the reader has a better chance of finding out what works for them. The only way I could see adding this to your school library is if you had a parent resource section. I would recommend it highly for a parent looking to help their child at home.
