If you ask a grown-up to add up 8 cars + 2 trucks, they’ll probably say that’s 10 vehicles. And it’s true. But these 10 young friends know what else those things add up to: a race! What will they do with 7 robes + 3 capes? Or 6 pots + 4 pans? 10 simple objects can have infinite possibilities.

Previously in the Big, Little Concepts series, author Victoria Allenby packaged important kindergarten readiness skills in preschooler-perfect books, featuring shape recognition in Shape Up, Construction Trucks and sound and rhythm in Listen Up! Train Song. In Let’s Add Up!, aided by the sweet and lively illustrations of Maggie Zeng, she cleverly tucks lessons on categorization and all the ways to compose the number 10 into a playdate full of enticing imagination and creative play. A closing note to caregivers offers enriching, age-appropriate activities to keep building their child’s foundational learning skills. After all, 5 story time snuggles + 5 more = 10 opportunities to build lifelong learning!

Great read for early learners!

As a homeschool parent, I find myself drawn towards children's books that have an underlying meaning or an educational one. Even more so when it is written in a way that is easy for my early/young readers with vivid pictures.

Let's Add Up! had all of that. The author uses easy, simple words that are easy for young children to understand, but not so simple that it is a chore for a parent to read aloud. The illustrations are cute and vivid, and they provide that necessary step for visual learners.

I enjoyed that the author included fun activities for kids at the end of the book, perfect for kinesthetic learners.

Let's Add Up! would be a great addition to any beginner reading/counter library - whether at home or a school setting.

Good Points
Easy To Read, Vivid illustrations, Educational
