Synopsis: Two friends take off on a butterfly hunt, only to find themselves tangled in a mathematics net! Author Barbara Mariconda takes you along as the narrator, Rose, and her friend Ed race to see who can catch the most butterflies on this addition adventure. Who will win?
Overall thoughts: This charming book reminded me of my children… a healthy dose of competition! Repetition, rhyming and educational, readers will be excited to see who wins. This book has an excellent format that will appeal to children and adults alike. Look very closely at the engaging illustrations and your reader will understand why the winner won!
