Math Fables by Greg Tang

Math Fables, Greg Tang

From 1 to 10, these “lessons that count” are math magic for learning addition and subtraction.

Greg Tang has built his career as an author and math missionary on the power of creative problem solving. Now, through winsome “fables” about concepts that are relevant to the very youngest math learners — sharing, teamwork, etc. — Greg encourages kids to see the basics of addition and subtraction in entirely new ways. Fresh, fun, and most of all, inspiring, MATH FABLES is perfect for launching young readers on the road to math success!

I had a very hard time finding a counting book that would help me teach 1st graders that numbers are made up of other numbers. This book gives you great poems that are perfect for the exploration of numbers 1-10. The poems are short, descriptive, and beautifully illustrated. With all the math “counting” books out there I know it is difficult to decide which one to choose, but this book is a definite must have! If you are looking to develop early number sense with children and early concepts of grouping then this is the perfect book. This book definitely addresses NCTM standards.
