I would use this book as a read aloud to the whole class when I introduce addition with regrouping. I would read the book again after most of the children have mastered the concept. It could be used again with those students who have not yet mastered addition with regrouping in small group work. The children like the pictures. They responded to the questions eagerly. Working in a school with a large ELL population, I was glad to see the Spanish in the book. Their eyes lit up when I read the Spanish aloud. The children were motivated in interact with the story. This book would be used in Math to go along with addition with regrouping. It could also be used when discussing place value. This book would be great to have in a teachers' library for grades 1-5. I would recommend this book as a resource for Math literature.

I would recommend using this book as an introduction t the math concept of addition with regrouping. It definitely should be a read aloud to either whole class or small instructional group setting. The kids enjoyed being read to during math because it was something different that the norm. The students stayed focused while I read this book. The book give illustrations with a story to go along with addition with regrouping. If there were enough copies, it could be used during small reading groups. It would be nice for the students t have their own copy to see the illustrations better. I would recommend this book to other teachers. It is a different and new way to introduce addition with regrouping. It gives students another way to learn math.

Whole group or small group could benefit from this addition book. You could do this when teaching regrouping and use it along with your other materials. The book has wonderful illustrations. The mice characters make the math series appealing to children. My students were immediately engaged in the book from the first page where they found the character Onesie; dressed in a baby's one-piece shirt. They found this very amusing. The text and font were age appropriate and the questions printed in the inserts encouraged discussion. I used this book for Math and reviewing the concept of addition with regrouping to the hundreds place. We also infused the Spanish words into the discussion and related it to their Spanish lessons and vocabulary. I think it would be of great use to first and second grade. The concepts of regrouping really begin in first and second grade. I would recommend it for use to those teachers to supplement what they have.
