5.0 out of 5 stars Animal Word Problems - Fun way to learn addition and subtraction, November 2, 2010
This review is from: Animal Word Problems Starring Addition and Subtraction (Math Word Problems Solved) (Library Binding)
Are you one of those parents who become frustrated trying to explain how to solve word problems? Well, you are not alone. Many parents often say they do not know how to help their children with word problems. Animal Word Problems Starring Addition and Subtraction shows the reader step by step how to analyze the problem. Plus, everyone will learn a few animal facts in the process.

Features I Like:
*The general problem solving plan is generic, and I do not think it would interfere with any specialized plan a school may have adopted.

*This book is ideal for parent and children to read and solve together. Teachers would enjoy reading the book to the class. However, an oversized giant version of this book would work better for the classroom.

*I like that all types of addition and subtraction problems are thoroughly examined using animals to interest the children. Plus, they learn interesting facts about animals such as opossums stick out their tongues and play dead when threatened. Ring-tailed Lemurs tails are longer than their bodies. Do you know what one looks like? You can discover the answer while learning math.
