A riotous counting book that ends in a grand tea party for 100 friends.

If you could ask 10 friends to tea,
tell me who those friends would be.

You might invite 9 bears and 1 forest ranger. Or perhaps you'd choose 4 divers, 3 chauffeurs, and 3 drivers. Whichever group of friends you count, you'll still wind up with 10.

But what happens if all of your friends come? Put all the groups together and they add up to a whole lot more than 10--there are 100 friends coming for tea! Rollicking rhymes and cheerful pictures create a delightful introduction to simple addition concepts.

This book would be great for teaching students how different combinations can make one number. 6+4=10, 5+5 =10, and many more combinations. You can have your students right different combinations for other numbers. Read full review
