Embracing a Healthy Family: Multiply on the Fly by Suzanne Slade Book Review

Multiply on the Fly by Suzanne Slade Book Review

Following in the footsteps of What’s New at the Zoo? (zoo animal baby addition) and What’s the Difference? (endangered animal subtraction), children learn about insects and multiplication through rhythmic verses.

I'm always on the lookout for good books that entertain as well as teach.  It's hard finding them sometimes or at least ones that appeal to inquisitive minds.  I also still like to read books that have a rhythm when it comes to children's stories.  All this along with beautiful illustrations make up Multiply on the Fly by Suzanne Slade and illustrated by Erin E. Hunter.  Another great book set out by Sylvan Dell Publishing, I'm a fan.  Children love bugs and to write one that appeals to children while incorporating multiplication and facts about each bug is clever such as:

Four lovely luna moths
rest upon a pine.
Each one spans three inches.
How long is the luna line?
4x3=?


I think it's a great way to encourage young readers to read more and learn as they go.  The other aspect I love about this book is the back section, For Creative Minds. That provides further learning activities such as insect body parts, match the insect, compare and contrast and many more.

  

You can purchase Multiply on the Fly at Sylvan Dell Publishing in hardcover, soft cover or eBook.  There are even downloadable previews, a quiz, the creative mind portion and more at Sylvan Dell Publishing.

If your child takes part in the Accelerated Reader program, it's on the list!

Overall, I think it's a must have book for any home or school library.  It's easy to read, provides great educational facts and teaches about multiplication.  The illustrations are bright, beautiful and vibrant.
