About the Book
10 monsters, looking fine,
1 folds down.
Still up?

Bright photographs of dinosaurs, monsters, piglets, penguins, and other fun objects; rhyming text; and a fun game help children learn to subtract. This book teaches children that subtraction is a take-away action! Rows of colorful rubber duckies show subtraction facts within ten. Hummingbirds and chickadees show the difference between addition and subtraction. And furry penguins illustrate number sentence rhymes in this entertaining introduction to an arithmetic basic.

This book is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten and first-grade in mathematics in operations and algebraic thinking K.OA and 1.OA.

Jean Marzollo is the author of Help Me Learn Numbers 0-20 and Help Me Learn Addition. She lives in New York State.
