#blogbookaday: 7 Ate 9: The Untold Story

12 Mar

32498545Summary:  “6 has a problem.

Everyone knows that 7 is always after him. Word on the street is that 7 ate 9. If that’s true, 6’s days are numbered. Lucky for him, Private I is on the case. But the facts just don’t add up.

It’s odd.

Will Private I put two and two together and solve the problem.. or is 6 next in line to be subtracted?” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Private I’s takes the case, when 6 comes into the office after hearing that 7 ate 9 and 7’s after 6 now. The Private leaves no stone unturned as he searches for clues and interviews the other numbers. With lots of word and numberplay this is a fun story to share again and again.

Personal Reaction: I love wordplay, puns and cheesy dad jokes, so this story was right up my alley. The illustrations gave the Private Eye/noir story just the right touch and the the story would be one I’d read a couple times to make sure I didn’t miss anything. This book would be great for elementary age students and even older to get all the jokes, but preschool and early elementary age kids would enjoy the story as well (even if they didn’t “get” all the jokes)! This would make a great picture book to share in a math class, for sure!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
