Illustrator: Karen Lee

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Sylvan Dell Publishing, ©2006

Material: hard cover

Summary: Is it really possible? This is truly odd! From the numbers on the clock, to the sleeves on his shirt, our young student has a day filled with nothing but odd numbers. Even Princess, his dog, has five legs! This rhyming book helps children learn and distinguish odd numbers.

Type of Reading: family reading, anytime reading, playtime reading, learning to read

Recommended Age: read together: 4 to 8; read yourself: 7 to 10

Interest Level: 4 to 8

Age of Child: Shared with a Kindergarten class of twenty five- and six-year-olds.

Young Reader Reaction: The kids loved this book and it's companion My Even Day. They laughed their way through the numbers, pointing out lots of the smaller elements in the illustrations.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a lot of fun to read. They are great books, and I'm going to order them for our classroom.

Pros: Humorous illustrations and a rhyming story combine to help kids identify odd numbers from 1 to 99. A coloring activity at the back helps them create visual effects of number patterns for themselves.

Cons: None at all!

Borrow or Buy: Buy! The kids will want to read the story a bunch. You'll want to have it around for several of the early math years, because it will help reinforce learning in a way that makes sense to them.
