Candy Counting: Delicious Ways to Add and Subtract

Title:               Candy Counting: Delicious Ways to Add and Subtract
Category:       Nonfiction
Grade:            K-3
Author:          Lisa McCourt
Illustrator:      N/A
Publisher:       Troll
Date:               1999
Pages:             32

A sweet treat of a book that will have any child’s (and parent’s) mouth watering.  Each page contains a word problem and photographs of different candies and treats to help young children learn to add and subtract.  The problems set in traditional numeric form and the answers along with pictures of the candy by each number are in the back. 

One feature I really liked about this book was a page of math extensions related to food in the back of the book for parents to continue authentic and fun math practice at home.
