Rather than apples or oranges, trucks or cars, this clever picture book uses illustrations of insects in their natural habitat to teach multiplication.

Readers will multiply more than just the insects. One example is multiplying the eyes on a fly by the number of flies in the illustration. Multiply on the Fly also offers seek and find pages. Readers must find the insects in their habitat before they can be multiplied.

Hunter's illustrations are beautiful and realistic. This is a fresh, creative way to teach multiplication while learning about insects as well.

Additional pages at the end of the book offer a chance to match the insects, learn insect body parts and insect life cycles, plus more information and practice on multiplication.
