A Number Book

From the Series Math Is Fun!

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 2
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Nearly everyone has heard about the little piggy that went to the market and the one that stayed home-but there’s a lot more to the story! 20 Hungry Piggies completes the tale while, unbeknownst to the reader, teaching an important math concept at the same time. There are many counting books that deal with cardinal numbers (1,2,3,etc), but this book teaches ordinal numbers as well-an important part of the kindergarten math curriculum. As an added bonus, children will have a great time trying to find the hidden wolf and hidden numbers in each spread.

Kirkus Reviews

“Variation on the familiar rhyme should tickle very young listeners and Harris’s illustrations, combining watercolor and computer graphics, are crisp and simple.”
Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal

“Hilarious color cartoon illustrations show pigs with plenty of personality, each prominently displaying a number while that same number is hidden somewhere on the spread, along with the sneaky wolf. . . this funny story is perfect for one-on-one and group sharing.”
