This clever book starts with colorful pamphlets from Barky Pet Supply, Sadie’s Pet Grooming, and Vick’s Vet Clinic you tear out and use for the activity pages. You will cover math skills such as: area/perimeter, data analysis, story problems, charts/graphs, greater/less than, and multiplication/division. Also, you will cover real-life applications such as: money computation, check writing, budgeting, discount shopping, price comparison, shopping online and critical thinking. Along the way, topics of pet responsibility abound! It’s an appealing theme kids will enjoy. You could use this over a summer to keep math fun and fresh, or as a way to add practical math to your curriculum. Not reproducible. ~Sara
