Dynamic illustrations and appealing words combine to introduce beginning math concepts and reinforce visual literacy--"an exceptional introduction to mathematics."* Whether shared at home or in the classroom, this picture book is a fun way to learn basic math concepts.

"An unusually stimulating counting book that holds appeal for a wide spectrum of ages."--Publishers Weekly

If each orange has 8 slices and each slice has 2 seeds, then how many seeds are there in all? You'll have fun multiplying, adding, and counting your way through the math puzzles hiding in the world all around you.

Clear and colorful artwork by Donald Crews, the award-winning creator of Freight Train and Truck, gives young readers helpful hints to solve the engaging and age-appropriate word problems.

"The vibrant style of Crews's gouache artwork is well matched to this exceptional introduction to mathematics."--School Library Journal*
