Children's Book Review and #Giveaway: Multiply on the Fly

Sunday, September 25, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
From pirate bugs to spittlebugs to lovely Luna moths, children will love learning about the world’s insects in Multiply on the Fly! Following in the footsteps of What’s New at the Zoo? and What’s the Difference, this rhythmic book teaches multiplication in a way that will make children “bug” you for more. Teeming with fun facts, readers will multiply a variety of insects, including daring dragonflies, hungry honeybees, and stealthy walking sticks. The “For Creative Minds” section in the back of the book keeps the fun rolling with facts about the insect life cycle, matching insect activities, and multiplication guides to make anyone a multiplication master.

My Thoughts
Multiply on the Fly is a refreshing and fun first look at multiplication. Beautiful illustrations of dragonflies, ladybugs, and other insects perfectly complement the rhyming story. My kids were enchanted by the book, loudly counting bugs, wings and legs on every page. Multiply on the Fly, written by Suzanne Slade and illustrated by Erin E. Hunter, is recommended for ages 4-8.

Multiply on the Fly, a new children's book from Sylvan Dell Publishing, includes a section For Creative Minds. Young readers will learn fascinating facts about insect body parts, play a Match the Insects game, follow insect life cycles, and find an Insect Multiplication Table. More multiplication activities are available for free on the book's homepage at
