Ten cats are nine too many in this Level 3 Scholastic Math Reader!
In this fun-filled lesson about addition, subtraction, and multiplication, a girl, her mother, and their cat, Maxie, can't seem to stop attracting new cats. First, five strays come howling at the door, and then more and more keep appearing--adding up to too many cats!
One by one the ten cats find new homes. And then Maxie has kittens!
