A Day at the Zoo
Skills dealing with counting and cardinality provide essential foundations for beginning math students. Readers learn important topics, such as counting from 1 to 10, comparing numbers, answering “how many?” questions, counting by 10s, and writing numbers. Each topic is explained in detail using accessible text and colorful images to help readers independently explore these core math concepts. A fun visit to the zoo provides the backdrop for readers to explore comparing numbers and using number lines. Reflecting the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, the text directly addresses standard K.CC.C.7. This book should be paired with "Our Zoo Adventure" (9781477715994) from the Rosen Math Readers Program to provide the alternative point of view on the same topic.
