I'm particularly uneasy about the book's most resonant line, spoken by.

I'm particularly uneasy about the book's most resonant line, spoken by Louis Creed's elderly neighbor, Jud. "Sometimes, Louis," Jud says, "dead is better. Jesus said to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go, that I may awake him out of his sleep. Then the disciples looked at each other, and some smiled because they did not know Jesus had spoken in a figure. Lord, if he sleeps, he shall do well. Louis had stored the house keys away neatly (he was a neat and methodical man, was Louis Creed) in a small manila envelope which he had labeled "Ludlow House-keys received June 2. He had put the keys away in the Fairlane's glove compartment.

A pet store owner uses subtraction to find out how many pets and supplies she sold in one day, and how many more she needs to order.
This deceptively simple book that presents subtraction problems in an applied setting, a pet store. At first glance, the problems appear too simple, and the narrative fairly dull. However, since subtraction IS fairly straightforward (more so than say, multiplication) the author cleverly shows what subtraction can and cannot do. For example, Jen (the fresh-faced teen who works at the pet store, sells 8 of her 20 parakeets in one morning. The text shows that 20-8 = 12 (all answers are presented in the text, not, for example, at the back of the book.) Many books might stop right here, but "Pet Store Subtraction" adds a practical, evaluative question: Does Jen need to order more parakeets for the store? The answer is no, because she only needs to maintain a minimum flock of ten parakeets at any one time. Ribke includes similar 2-part questions (along with bright, in-focus pictures of the critters) throughout the book.

At a more advanced--or at least, different--level, the author places young readers in Jen's place. She sells 4 out of 9 squeaky dog toys, leaving five, but author Ribke doesn't mention a minimum number. Instead, Ribke asks the reader how many squeaky dog toys Jen should buy, with the comment," She doesn't want to run out of them!" as the only guidance. Similarly, kids will see that 12 hermit crabs - 6 hermit crabs leaves 6 left, but Ribke pulls a sly one when he asks "How many hermit crabs will Jen need to order?" This is another judgement call, not answerable mathematically, and one of the most important math skills is differentiating what is relevant from what is not, what is given from what is unknown, and what can be calculated from what is not strictly a math problem. This small, attractive 31-page book features a brief vocabulary section (with pictures illustrating the words) and an index. Simone Ribke has a bachelor's in Elementary Education, and has worked on a variety of kids' education materials. Her experience shows here.
We have this book in our school library. I love it so much that I ordered it for my classroom. It is a very good book for introducing subtraction word problems. I use it in my kindergarten class. After reading the book, I have students write and solve their own pet store subtraction stories.
