9780060001322: Leaping Lizards (MathStart 1)

Stuart J. Murphy travels all over the UnitedStates talking to thousands of kids. And you'll never believe what they talk about: MATH! Stuart shows kids that they use math every day -- to share a pizza, spend their allowance, even sort socks. Stuart writes funny stories about math -- and if you read his books, you'll start to see the fun in math, too.

Leaping Lizards

The show's about to begin -- but where are all the lizards? Slowly they start to arrive in groups of 5 and 10. Will all 50 make it in time? An introduction to counting by 5s and 10s.

About the Author:

From Booklist:

PreS-K. Part of the ongoing Math Start series, which offers math concepts in picture-book format for a variety of levels, this book introduces the multiples of five, as lizards of different colors travel through the pages on unicycles, a hot-air balloon, an airplane, and other modes of transport, while a green snake looks on. Finally, the number 50 is reached, and lizards explode in all directions. Written in short couplets, the simple text describes the ever-increasing number of lizards, but the highlight of the book is the effective design. An intelligent blending of white space and colors make each double-page spread visually stand out. A box on one side of each page helps children keep track of the multiplying lizards, and a closing section offers adults a few more ideas for easy math education. Todd Morning
