A Pair of Socks
Written by Stuart J. Murphy

Does a polka-dotted sock match a striped sock? Young children will learn about matching, an important early math skill, as a lonely striped sock searches the house for its mate. They will may even be inspired to practice this skill in their own sock drawers!

It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.
This is a Level 1 MathStart book, which is perfect for kids ages 5 and up. The MathStart series uses funny stories and colorful art to show kids that they use math every day, even outside of the classroom!
