Children's LiteratureAddison, Multiplex, Split, and Mini went to the Double Fun Circus when it came to town. They decided to join in the activities. Addison juggled balls. He started with one ball. Then he doubled that and juggled two balls. He continued to double the number of balls he juggled until he was juggling sixteen balls and could do no more. Multiplex lifted weights. He lifted a bar with a five-pound weight on each end making the total weight that he lifted double that. Mini did a magic act. She doubled the five birds she had in her magic hat. Then she doubled the number of birds again. There are corner questions in the book to stimulate the children to do some critical thinking about doubling numbers. Activities coordinated with these corner questions are listed in the back of the book to help guide parents or teachers. Some of these activities include adding the same numbers to both sides of a balance bar. This book is part of the "Math Monsters" series and would be a beneficial addition to a classroom library. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 5 to 9.
