Multiply on the Fly by Suzanne Slade
This book combines the study of insects with multiplication. There are simple multiplication facts on each page along with beautiful illustrations of butterflies, dragonflies, walking sticks and more. It is an easy, engaging way to introduce 1st-3rd graders to the world of multiplication. The children will be able to answer all of the questions themselves by either counting or grouping the bugs and their parts. There are also more activities in the back to continue their math education. This book shows the simple but powerful connection between the patterns we see in nature and the patterns on a multiplication table.
