Product Description

Mrs. Comfort has everything arranged for the party. 32 people are coming, and she has eight tables with four chairs at each table. However, the day of the party, people want to keep sitting together, and pushing tables together! Mrs. Comfort tries to warn Mr. Comfort that it won't work, but instead they keep trying different combinations (and eating more garlic bread) as more and more people show up. Can you figure out why Mrs. Comfort's plan was the best?

Spaghetti and Meatballs for All presents the concepts of surface area and perimeter in a fun story that makes these concepts real, and most importantly, useful! Designed to stimulate children's imaginations, the story and the fun of figuring out the math will delight children. Grades 2-4. 40 pages, softcover.
