7 Ate 9: The Untold Story by Tara Lazar


While strolling through the shelves of the picture book section of the library, 7 Ate 9: The Untold Story by Tara Lazar caught my attention. I immediately remembered the joke: Why was six afraid of seven? Because seven ate nine! This silly joke is brought into this humorous mathematical picture book that uses play on words to entertain readers of all ages. 

Inside Book Cover

A special detective, a private investigator I is on the case when the number 6 informed him that the number 7 was after him. "Word on the street is that 7 ate 9! And now he's after me! (page 4)." And the story problem begins. 

7ate9 The Untold Story-Read Aloud-Twinkle Teaches:


I think this is a great way to integrate reading into math time with this book's play on numbers and mathematical words. Once the book has been read, it will be time for students to solve some problems of their very own. This could be paired with some creative story problems, using current concepts you are teaching in the classroom. You students can play the role of the private I.

This book was read in part of my #BookaDay Summer Reading Challenge, you can learn more about this here. Please feel free to subscribe to my blog or follow me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time .....
