Ultimately, this lacks the solid and seamless math practice of the first; it’s just some math annoyingly mixed with a few kinda-funny jokes.

Synopsis

Those wacky birds, the Wing Wing brothers, are back and running amok at the carnival! Readers will have a terrific time laughing at their antics as the brothers show off their strength, down hot dogs in a wiener war, and go for the ride of their lives on the Wedgie Wheel. All the while they will be learning about counting, adding, and subtracting by tens.

"This is how learning math should be painless, comical and yes, spectacular," a starred "Kirkus Reviews" noted of the companion title, "The Wing Wing Brothers Math Spectacular! A page for teachers and parents explains exactly how the book meets the Common Core State Standards. ""
