This book is about a math whiz named Harley Harrison. Not only was he a math whiz but he is a huge tattle tale. He is also writing the teacher notes tattling on his classmates and they do not like it. In his notes he always includes some sort of math. "Cindy and Mindy forgot to clean under their desks three days in a row. P.S. There are four pencils, six crayons, seven pieces of paper, and ten tissues. Signed, H.H." Then the class got a new student named Emma Jean who was just like Harley. She started telling on him just like her did with his classmates. Then there was a math assignment that would get who ever finished it first and got all of the problems correct extra recess time for four days in a row. So the two put their differences aside and joined forces. I won't give away the ending but this is a great book not only for discussing the difference between tattling and telling during the first week of school, but it is also great for teaching basic math. There are examples of addition all throughout the book, and in the back of the book there is something called "Math Tattle Battle Teasers". It has math problems for students to do with answers on the very last page. It is a great book and I would recommend it to any parent or teacher.
