Summer with Albert and Wanda

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.  Before we see the last of August, I thought I'd show you what I have been up to with the latest editions of Mouse Math by Kane Press. 

Albert decides to make a beach of his own in the People's backyard sandbox in "A Beach for Albert," written by Eleanor May. The only problem is how to fill up his "beach" with water. Albert learns a big lesson on Volume and Capacity in this story. 

As he begins his plan to fill up a "pool" with his own tiny bucket, he soon realizes it will take him the  rest of summer to get the water high enough so that all the mice can go swimming. 

That's where Albert's creative thinking comes in. And, of course, his older sister, Wanda, is not all together sure he knows what he is doing.

 In "Albert is Not Scared," also written by Eleanor May, Albert and Wanda visit Mousey World and this time, it is Albert who is unsure of the amousement park rides. He's not really afraid....he just doesn't like rides that go up and down, or left and right, or around and around.

Albert decides he will go on the Chew-Chew Train, because it only goes "forward," but what happens when Albert and Wanda accidently get in the wrong line for the train? This super fun and fast story teaches Direction Words.

These books are the eighth and ninth books in the adorable Mouse Math series and are available on Amazon.  Additional materials can be downloaded on the Kane Press website. I'm currently illustrating the next book in the series which involves Albert baking in the kitchen!

Congratulations, Deb! These both look a-dorable! We love mouse math in our house - equally smart and fun for us to read.
