Reviewed by Lyn Seippel
his cheerful rhyming picture book is told in first person by a girl with a book on butterflies. Each day she and her friend Ed compete to catch the most butterflies. On the first day Ed wins. He catches nine butterflies while she catches only one. Nine plus one equals ten.
very pair of pages describe the butterfly hunt for one day, adding the results and coming up with ten. A short butterfly fact is included at the bottom of the page. The illustrations add humor to the hunt.
t the end of the story, four additional pages are filled with math and butterfly activities. Sylvan Dell also invites the reader to their website to take advantage of resources and support.
