Synopsis

Synopsis

Brrriiiing! Recess time! Little chimps Jill and Jake find more than just their favorite games in the schoolyard today. They also discover the important mathematical concept of doubling, or adding a number to itself. Easy to learn and fun to memorize, doubling is a valuable problem-solving tool that helps kids prepare for multiplication. A must-have addition to any math-themed picture book library, Double Play makes this arithmetic lesson as welcome as recess.

Review, School Library Journal, June 1, 2011
"Young students will enjoy the book for its play aspect, not realizing that the math lesson is built into it. Every elementary school needs this one."

Review, Booklist, July 1, 2011
"The bright, buoyant line-and-watercolor illustrations amplify the cheerful tone of the story while clearly delineating the objects meant to be counted. Useful for teachers and fun for students."
