Two friends take off on a butterfly hunt, only to find themselves tangled in a mathematics net! Written in rhyme, award-winning author Barbara
Mariconda takes you along as the narrator, Rose, and her friend Ed race to see who can catch and then release the most butterflies on this addition adventure. “How many in all? Let’s add them again!” shout the butterfly hunters. Who will win? Ten for Me makes math fun, easy, and entertaining, while
adding a touch of the natural world.
It’s so much more than a picture book . . . this book is specifically designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussions and learning.
Whether read at home or in a classroom, we encourage adults to do the activities with the young children in their lives.
