Rated 5 out of 5 by from Math Lit Great book to use in math class! I have read it to kindergarten aged students, but it can also be used in older grades, depending on what you want to introduce to them. Rare to find a storybook (and a math story book at that) that can cover grades from kindergarten to grade 4!
