Hershey's Kisses Addition Book and Activity

The Hershey's Kisses Addition Book by Jerry Pallotta is a delightful (Read-Aloud) book to use with the kids when they are beginning to learn ADDITION.

The book uses Hershey's Kisses (yummy manipulatives!) to teach and illustrate the concept of addition.

It teaches/reviews the concept of plus 1 (from 1+1 to 9+1) and doubles (from 0+0 to 10+10).

It also lightly touches on adding 3 numbers (addends) and the very last page illustrates one subtraction fact.

The book contains LOTS of math vocabulary:
  • numbers
  • signs
  • count
  • addition
  • addends
  • plus
  • sum
  • equals
  • equation
  • facts
  • doubles
  • doubling
  • pairs
  • pattern
  • total
  • value
  • single digit
  • double digit
  • combinations
  • group
  • grouping
  • minus
  • subtraction
  • million
  • etc. 

The illustrations are very cute with clowns running all over the place and the text is comical with some rhyme.  Kids should really enjoy this book especially if they get to illustrate (then eat) some of the equations (number sentences) in the book with real Hershey's Kisses!

Have fun with math!
