Children's LiteratureSplit has decided to make her room look pretty. She begins by painting a border on her wall using shapes. When she gets a phone call, her Math Monster friends—Multiples, Addison and Mina—decide to help her finish decorating. Follow along as the Monsters create and describe patterns.

Multiple questions throughout the book actively engage the reader and related activities listed at the book's end give children and adults an opportunity to reinforce the book's concepts by putting them into practice. The Math Monsters public television series was developed in cooperation with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The "Math Monsters" series of books is designed to meet and support NCTM Standards for Pre-K-2 mathematics content and process instruction. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 5 up.
