“Kids, young and old, fall in love with math when they see how real-life and effortless it becomes thanks to these books.” —Kimberly D. Mueller, Ed.D., First Grade Teacher, Ashbrook School, Lumberton NJ

Jump, Kangaroo, Jump! is perfect for teaching fractions to second, third, and fourth graders. In this story, Kangaroo and his friends at camp divide into halves, thirds, and fourths to form teams at field day. Readers will cheer on this rowdy crew of animals as they swim, canoe, play tug-of-war, and have a good, goofy time. 

Kids will love the story and the illustrations by Kevin O'Malley. Parents and educators will love how the story and pictures make understanding the math concepts a breeze—as well as the concrete examples of how math works.
