  2. For each math adventure, begin by reading the poem aloud with your child.
  3. Next, take Max's Challenge. Enter your answer and then see Max's response.
  4. For more practice with similar problems, encourage your child to try the Extra Challenges. Some are pretty tough!
  5. Finally, print out the Activity page. Your child can even color Max and Ruthie!
