The Action of Subtraction

The author and illustrator of the best-selling Words Are CATegorical™ series bring their trademark sense of humor to the subject of subtraction.

Rhyming text filled with funny, countable examples shows what it means to take one number away from another.

Readers are also introduced to the terminology they’ll encounter as they learn to subtract.


“This book has value in the mathematic section of libraries and will find a place in classrooms with teachers who want to appeal to a variety of learning styles.” (School library Journal)

“This engaging romp through numbers is a lively exploration of subtraction and an irrepressible invitation to play.” (Yellow Brick Road)
