Teddy Bear Subtraction is a children's picturebook that uses illustrations of colored gummy bears to teach young people about the basics of subtraction, including the simple concepts of "sets", "greater than", and "less than". The last couple pages even cover how children can use the technique of "borrowing" when performing a subtraction equation such as 37 - 19. Easy-to-follow and educational, Teddy Bear Subtraction might even teach adults a thing or two! (Did you know what the "minuend" and the "subtrahend" of a subtraction equation are?) Highly recommended, especially for public and grade school library collections, and also for parents who want to help their child get a head start in math class!
