Christopher + a dozen eggs = one big, gooey mess! Can accident-prone Christopher bring homes a dozen eggs all unbroken? It looks good, until he gets scrambled by Doofus the dog and crazy Carmella on her bike! A great introduction to simple subtraction and the concept of a dozen, this tale ends sunny-side up. Endearing, hapless Christopher is the star of a wonderful series of beautifully illustrated picture books. Each engaging, humorous tale teaches children that math is all around us. Math concepts are conveyed through the text and "minds-on" activities embedded in every story.
