Who Eats First? by Ae-Hae Yoon, illustrated by Hae-won Yang, is another book in the math concepts of books that teach math basics through story-telling. This book is a story about placing items and animals in various orders from smallest to biggest, fattest to smallest, and tallest to shortest. This helps children understand how to differentiate size and type using animals. The activities in the back are relatively easy to execute from putting numbered cards in order, rearranging them and having people draw them and then being placed in order. These books would be great for classroom use.
Finding a delicious peach in the rainforest might seem odd, but these animals only care how good it will taste once they bite into it. While they all want to share it, they are unsure who should go first when taking that first juicy bite. There are different attempts to measure the animals and determine who should go first, but there are also discussions about differences, like who has the most legs, the longest ears, the longest tail, the longest neck, etc. The book goes over the various ways to measure things from height to weight and more. The pictures will help kids understand those concepts clearly.
Who Eats First? by Ae-Hae Yoon, illustrated by Hae-won Yang, is engaging and fun, and the activities can help parents and teachers engage children in math lessons. My daughter and I have had fun measuring a variety of things in the house and outside, and spying differences between animals and ourselves.
