Well, this is a math oriented picture book, and I can see that it might have been great if I had used it in that way. I chose to just read this as a regular story to my niece and nephew, however, because that just seemed appropriate for our moods this evening. They liked it ok, but I doubt they'll really remember it. I don't think I'll turn this one back in yet. I think I'll give this one more go with my niece, and really emphasize the math aspect of this book a little more. We'll see if she enjoys it more from that angle.
