The Common Core Standards addressed in this book focus on Number and Operation in Base Ten, the cornerstone of k-6 mathematics.
For early math fluency these stories can be read with younger grades to add great fun to their math learning. The joy can be doubled with the added use of manipulatives.
For older students the reading level makes for great fun in learning to read out loud and with a partner, because the poems are designed to be of a higher reading level, but also for maximum fun! The will elicit giggles and laughter as kids will ask to read them again and again!

Speaking of math was designed out of a love for reading and watching our daughter grow up want to play with books more than any other toy. Realizing this, we readily began seeking out different formats to engage her growth in different aspects of reading skills. We wanted her to be a fluent reader and enjoy rich vocabulary. We found that she loved the format of partner reading in two voices. We wanted her to develop the same love for mathematics.
Hence, our stories were born!
"My children (6&7 1/2) both enjoy reading
this book & each have their "favorite"
numbers they want us to read with them.
Every number has a poem that is entertaining for boys and girls. This is a book both of my kiddos can agree on! Five plus stars from me because even as we are laughing, we are learning some math facts *bonus!!* We love the book in our home!" Justin Prather, 5 star amazon review.
