Another of the math and candy series of books, this one teaches very basic counting (1-10) and sets, simple addition and simple subtraction as well as a few geometric shapes.

What a concept to match candy with learning math skills, play with food that most children love then let them eat it, bribery disguised!

Teachers, parents and homeschooling parents love this book, as do the kids, of course, who will go along with these exercises just to get to eat the candy!

My six year old daughter has been struggling with subtraction
facts. She can do any word problem, but the facts just made no
sense to her. I have used concrete objects as well as several
"math books" to help her make sense of it all, but with no
results. Then I thought of buying this book. That's all that it took! My child is no longer frustrated and confused about the
meaning of subtraction. Best of all, she likes math now, and yes,
eating the m&m's was a surprise bonus. As a fifth grade teacher
and mom of a first grader, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to any
teacher or parent who simply wants to do fun activities with math. It's especially helpful to children who can't quite grasp
the concept of simple subtraction. I think the author should have
included some "counting back" facts after she introduced the first fact (12-1). It would've been so easy and sensible to go
ahead with (12-2), (12-3),etc. My daughter and I did a few count
back facts at this point in the book, and it made sense to her.
This is the reason for my rating of 4 stars.
