Recommends it for: parents reading with children
There are books about animals and books about math. This book tries to do both, and I think it is moderately successful.

I would use this to show correlation to real life. Let students see how math is in everything we do. Cute pics of baby panda.

I have no idea why they bothered to include the subtraction nonsense. If a kid picks up a book about pandas, he's not thinking about subtraction!

Teaching subtraction by using information about two baby pandas. I will be getting other books in this series. A good living maths book.
