It also has riddles. Again, looking at it the wrong way. Except for the person said that this author is so funny.

I was disappointed that i spent so much for a book that is si short. Based on other reviews i expected it to have riddles, more than elementary poems. Very unhappy with spending this money!

Why does it say it is supported for iPad Nook Kids but then says on the device that the iPad is not yet supported!? Very frustrating!

Genre: InformationalMedia: computer generatedAge: Intermediate, PrimaryReview: There are no characters in this book. Also, the problems given show different ways to solve math problems. It provides students a way to think differently about math.

I was expecting this book to be very simple and geared toward younger grades, but I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading the riddles. I can see these being very helpful in middle school math classes, because each riddle teaches a different strategy for quickly counting a large number of items by focusing on how to group them. Students will need to use their reading comprehension skills in conjunction with math skills in order to get the correct answer. These riddles could easily be used for warmup activities in a middle school classroom and could be used for a unit on word problems as well.

This would be a great addition to any classroom. I love the rhyming/poetry feel of this book.

This book is full of rhyming math problems. They deal with grouping and the book is perfect to read to students when they are learning about multiplication and grouping numbers.
