“The team behind the Words Are CATegorical™ series offers the first in a series about math. Through playful rhymes, the book explains basic concepts such as, “No amount gets smaller when you're working in addition. The numbers climb from low to high 'cause that's addition's mission!” Children count bubbles, rings, school buses, baseballs, baby-sitters, eggs, and musicians in this fun introduction, which also covers terms that are indicative of the operation.” (School Library Journal)
