We received Ten Magic Butterflies in exchange for this post. All opinions remain my own.
A fantastical story featuring butterflies, fairies (and numbers) makes this picture book from Danica McKellar, the New York Times bestselling author of Goodnight, Numbers (and star of The Wonder Years) positively enchanting!
Ten Magic Butterflies (Crown Books for Young Readers) arrives on bookshelves everywhere February 13th with a suggested retail price of $17.99. It’s written for ages 4-6 to enjoy it most.
Join ten flower friends for a night of excitement that mixes a little math with a lot of magic. As each of ten adorable flowers turns into a butterfly, children will discover different ways to group numbers to create ten, an essential building block of math that will enable them to achieve success in addition and subtraction throughout elementary school and beyond.
The mission of McKellar Math is to introduce and explain math concepts in fun, easy-to-digest ways with colorful analogies and simple tricks, and to show kids that math is an inherent part of the world around them. Recent studies have shown that media-and even family and friends-can influence a child’s perception of math. At an early age, it is crucial to dispel myths that math is hard or scary. With its catchy thymes and vibrant illustrations, Ten Magic Butterflies helps put young minds on the path to a lifelong love for numbers!
