JUVENILE FICTION / Mathematics
This playful picture book demonstrates the concept of fractions in a story featuring the Arithmechicks, 10 math-loving chicks.

Join the Arithmechicks and Mouse as they head off to the fair! These chicks can’t wait to enjoy the roller coaster, bumper cars, games, and delicious snacks; meanwhile Mouse is determined to sink the rooster at the dunk tank. As the Arithmechicks explore the fair, they find ways to show how fractions work in the world. But when one chick doesn’t get to select an activity, the day doesn’t go according to plan until the chicks decide they all need to play fair. This book includes a helpful glossary with further information about fractions, while the story provides an exuberant introduction to essential math for young children and their caregivers.

Series Overview: In these engaging stories, 10 math-loving chicks—the Arithmechicks—introduce key math strategies as they play.

NEW PAPER-OVER-BOARD FORMAT AND LOWER PRICE: To appeal to a wide audience, we’re now publishing this series in a paper-over-board format. This book along with the first three will be 8 x 8, unjacketed, and $12.99.

IDEAL SERIES FOR HOME AND SCHOOL LIBRARIES: The six books in the Arithmechicks series present essential math concepts in engaging stories: addition, subtraction, fact families, fractions, greater than/less than/equal to and ordinal numbers.

PERFECT FOR PARENTS WHO WANT TO HELP THEIR KIDS WITH MATH: A glossary explains—in illustration and text—the concepts that appear in the book.

FUN STORYTIME AND MATH CONCEPT BOOK IN ONE: Written by a first-grade teacher, this book introduces fractions in the context of a trip to a fair. It combines suspense (will Mouse succeed at the dunk tank?) with emotion (what happens when someone is left out?) to create an engaging story that involves math.

COLORFUL, ENGAGING ILLUSTRATIONS: Jia Liu’s artwork captures the drama and will help readers visualize the mathematical concepts introduced in school and explored in this picture book.

GREAT FOR HOMESCHOOLERS: This is a playful way to reinforce lessons learned at school or at home.
