    Leedy's book is written in the setting of a classroom, however the twist is that it is a classroom of animals. Mrs. Prime, the teacher, has transformed her classroom into a discovery of solving mysteries using mathematics. She teaches them math symbols, writing equations and terminology through figuring who ate all the cookies. Also, they connected the terms addends and sum to this activity. This book can be used for the mathematical benefit of first and third graders. First grade can use this book to remind and prepared them for writing and producing equations. The associative property can also be understood in Mrs. Prime's class. In the activity of figuring how many different kind of animals she had as a pet. Leedy's book can also be used to teach third graders how to add a series of addition equations using the strategy of friendly numbers. This activity of figuring the variety of fruit on a painting can be furthered by teaching the students how to solve these equations using mental math. Throughout this book all students will be able to understand that math is all around them and every where.

    -this book describes different strategies used to solve addition problems-put in colorful comic/graphic novel type style so it is engaging for students-a fun activity that would go along with this book would be to play a review game where each child gets a symbol (= sign or + sign) or a strategy (2+3=5,3+2=5) and they would explain to the class what their specific addition term was (teacher will use differentation here, know who to give the more simple or more complex strategies)-another fun game would be addition jeopardy before a unit test on addition

    In this book Miss Prime teaches 6 lessons all about addition. The setting of the book is in the classroom where the teacher teaches the lessons with the students involved. First is addition facts, adding big numbers, adding totals, adding money, adding during problem solving, and more adding money.It has vocabulary, pictures, and fun dialog between the characters. It explains things in a way that is very easy to understand.

    Good for:- teaching meaning of math signs (+,=,-)-addition in the beginning (not good as an introduction though)-introduces strategies for solving math: draw a picture, add 10s then 1s, multi step math problems, and checking your work-introduces and defines math vocabulary such as: addends and sum-cute structure of book with speech bubbles and dialog-interesting art work that will keep the students engaged

    Mission Addition takes very basic math concepts and turns them into fun, short picture stories which help children to understand the concept. The book discusses basic addition topics such as adding one and two digit numbers, adding multiple numbers, counting money, and word problems. This would be a fun book to have in a preschool or kindergarten classroom.

    This was a good read but it was more useful in small groups because of the structure of the book. We were still reviewing addition so it was beneficial in a way. However, I believe using this book as a read aloud is not the best idea. The students were not able to engage much.

    This book is interesting because it's written as a series of math conversations. The students get a chance to practice the math facts s they go along. Great for addition practice. I also like that it showed how addition can be used in diferent situations.

    The characters in this book are on a mission to find addition. The book teaches children that addition is takes things and putting them together. In the book they review signs used in addition. I would encourage children to find objects around them to add. Great book to teach addition.

    This book helps children realize that pretty much any object can be added. This book would be great as a read aloud before math workshop stations. The problems could be recreated and the children will be able to practice their number sense regarding addition.

    Teaches how to set up an addition problem using real life situations. This would be good for kindergarten and first grade.

    This book is all about addition. She explains what addends and the sum are. The characters add all sorts of things throughout the book. It is a very fun and interactive book.

    Good way to make addition fun in a literature format. Definitely for older children, probably 1st grade and above. Written in a comic book format that can be challenging for little ones to follow.

    Read with my 7 and 3 year old. My 7 thought it was boring and too easy but we found it a great introduction for my 3yr old. He learned the symbols and was able to answer the problems.

    I find I don't like her books. They are discordant and jarring to me. ICK!

    I loved this book for reviewing math concepts we covered in first grade. At the end of the year, the students were really engaged and trying to figure out all the riddles contained within. They loved it!
