Kari-Lynn Winters and Lori Sherritt-Fleming team up again for another poetry collection for young readers with the emphasis on math concepts including measuring time, patterns, counting, symmetry, numbers, shapes, estimating and more!

He was hungry for math, always ready to munch.
Math for his breakfast, math for his lunch.

He'd pig out on pie charts and bar graphs galore,
binge on skip-counting, and still ask for more.

Shapes — he discovered — were less filling fare.
He'd taste test a rhombus, sparing room for a square.

then slurp on the coins he'd slopped on his shirt.

At night, in the dark, he'd gnaw on base ten,
toss back some clocks, and crunch numbers again.
