You Can, Toucan, Math: Word Problem-Solving Fun

by David A. Adler
Illustrated by Edward Miller

Published by Holiday House, 2006
28 pages
ISBN: 0823419193

Ages 5-8

A woodpecker pecks an elm, an oak, and a beech. In all, how many pecks does the woodpecker peck if the woodpecker pecks the trees four pecks each?Ē No, itís not a tongue-twister, itís a story problem! Twenty-one word problems challenge young readersí and listenersí math skills. About half of the problems are straightforward addition and subtraction. The rest can also be solved using multiplication and division. The steps for solving each problem are in small, upside-down print on the bottom of each page. Bright, inviting colors and bold graphic images make this math visually inviting, while addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division tables on the endpapers offer a helpful boost to those still mastering these essentials.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
