Ever forgotten the ABC song? Songs learned in childhood are remembered for a lifetime. Now for my Next Number! presents a collection of colorful, easy-to-sing, easy-to-memorize songs that will help children practice and learn multiplication. Each song features a number and its multiples and tells a story in rhythm, rhyme, melody and pictures, making math a lively and multi-sensory activity. Imaginative full color illustrations set the scenes and show coherent groupings of objects that show the number and the number of times it is multiplied. By counting the objects in the pictures children will understand how each multiplication product is derived. Original music and vocals on the CD will have children singing along and effortlessly absorbing the multiples of each number. When it's time to know the times tables in school, children will already know the answers and have an easy way to practice while singing these songs.

Author Biography

When Margaret Park moved from rural North Carolina to downtown Salt Lake City, she needed to come up with new methods of vegetable gardening in her small urban backyard. Over four years, she experimented with tighter seed spacing, vertical growing supports, multiple cropping through the year and composting with EM bokashi to arrive at a highly productive system to grow a lot of food in a small space. Margaret Park is the author of four children's books. She was a 2012 Grow America finalist.
