Poor Joe! He wants to march in the parade, but every time the lines are uneven, he must stand aside. What's a poor bug to do? Determined to solve the problem, Joe rearranges the bugs in his squadron until inspiration and fortitude result in five lines of five-and Joe fits in at last. Joe's story is a fun and entertaining introduction to the concept of remainders, sure to become a favorite of kids, parents, and teachers alike.
When the queen of her bugs demands that her army march in even lines, Private Joe divides the marchers into more and more lines so that he will not be left out of the parade.
