It’s time for another edition of Nonna’s Corner, where I share reviews of the books I’ve read to my grandchildren affectionately referred to as the Royals here at Caffeinated. Today we have Annie Aardvark: Adding Ants by Suzie Olsen. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and count with us….
by Suzie Olsen
Annie Aardvark loves math. As she sets out on her daily forage, she decides to add up all the ants she encounters.
She zigs and zags through the landscape, stopping to us her nose, tongue, and paws to perform addition.
Join Annie on her math adventure!
Annie Aardvark: Adding Ants by Suzie Olsen, illustrated by Davina “Viv” Kinney is the second book about the inquisitive antics of little Annie. The author’s love of science and mathematics inspired her to create Annie and I hope you’ll add her to your bookshelf.
Once again we join Annie Aardvark on a counting adventure. Annie the aardvark is a mathematician who loves to count, add and subtract. The Royal and I first met Annie in Annie Aardvark, Mathematician. In this story Annie wakes wondering what she can ADD today and decides use her skills to count ants. Come zig and zag with her and she teaches basic adding skills
The simple illustrations and repetitive words and phrases make this great for early learners and readers. The book takes us on Annie’s adventure as she counts ants. It has vocabulary builder words and simple adding from zero all the way to five plus five.
The ant illustrations allowed Sophia to count each ant along with Annie reinforcing counting and adding skills. Even Clayton who is not the targeted age group benefitted from hearing us add and he took a fancy to all the little ants.
Annie Aardvark: Adding Ants is a fun story that introduces children to the wonders of math.
