Editorial Reviews

"I loved the literature connections to each activity in How Many Ways Can You Make Five?! Children develop their own understanding of math and the different ways they can problem solve. This book introduces math terms and how parents can build math activities (such as counting cookies) into their everyday activities. I loved the easy directions and the questions that were scripted for parents to ask. It is very easy for a person outside of the education field to use. I also loved the fact that it fostered some great conversations between parent and child!" - Teacher's Choice Award for the Family
