Math Fables

Math Fables

by Greg Tang Illustrated by Heather Cahoon

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.

These playful rhyming math stories give young learners a start on higher level math by encouraging readers to think about groups and numbers in creative ways.

Fresh, fun, and most of all, inspiring, Math Fables is perfect for launching young readers on the road to math success!
