This book introduces kids to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in a fun and unthreatening fashion. Math riddles encourage young readers to think through math problems as they study both the amusing verse and pictures. Solutions and tables are provided.

This book addresses all four operations in a fun, problem-solving approach. Very colorful too! I can't believe it is out of print!!!
In good shape! This a fun book for kids. Makes learning math fun!
This book sounded like it would be good for my classroom, but is really just pages of word problems. The child must pick addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division and solve the problem
I teach and tutor third through fifth grade. This book was a great problem solving activity in my small group instruction. I covered the "answers" on each page with post it tape, gave each student a white board/marker, and read each page that has a wonderful bird math problem solving question on it written in pose. I asked the students to write the math problem (+, -, X, div) that would solve the query from each poem on their boards, and then we discussed our answers. The students loved it. I then had each student choose one page, illustrate it and copy the poem for a bulletin board which I named "Birds + Spring = Great Math Problems". I also hung a beautiful bird quilt that my students had made on a previous year. Great book, great springboard for all kinds of math instruction. But I also think it would be a great book to cuddle up with at home, one on one with your own favorite little student.
