Editorial Reviews

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

Format: Paperback
My son was given several of the titles in this series for Christmas. He and his 3 year old sister really enjoy all of them. In this one, they are trying to gather all the lizards together. They arrive in 5's. Then the narrator loses count and they start over, only this time they count by 10's. Great stuff. Makes skip counting painless.

I am using this book for an introduction for counting by 5's to my 1st graders. I love to read to my students and this book will be fun to read to them as a hook. In addition this book is very colorful which I love. I have a few other books by this same author to aid in hooking my students to a new concept in math.
