Is your age more or less? Let Eddie guess your age, and if he misses he gets dunked! Eddie's classmate, Clara, tries her luck but Eddie guesses her age. Other picnic participants test Eddie's math skills, but Eddie is just too good at counting and guessing their age. Clara, however, has a secret weapon. And the final surprise is who gets to dunk Eddie! Young readers will enjoy this rollicking, guessing math game that counts and compares whole numbers. Students will learn how much fun it is to guess and count whole numbers, even at a picnic.
