Ten For Me by Barbara Mariconda
Yahoo for math picture books!!!!kids need to see more connections between literature and math but that is for another day....
Two friends, Rose and Ed, head out to see who can catch the most butterflies. Ed takes an early lead with 10 butterflies on the first day. And Rose? Zero. Things are looking up, slightly, on day 2 when Rose catches 1 and Ed, 8. At first glance, this is an addition book. BUT there is so much more...patterns, predicting, subtraction. Every school should have this book available for teachers to use. AND there is a whole section at the end for ideas of how to use the book in the classroom! LOVE IT!!! Authors/illustrators understanding the busy lives of teachers!!
