Looking for a Moose

Randy Cecil, illustrator
Looking for a Moose is a fun children’s story full of onomatopoeia and adjectives. The children look and look for a moose by wading in water, climbing rocks, and all sorts of things. Of course, they see several moose at the end of the story. This is a great story for language development.
I was looking for books about and by Minnesota authors as on February 25, 2013, I am part of a blog hop BOOKING ACROSS THE USA, hosted by the Growing Book by Book Blog. I have also written a post about South Dakota for that day. There will be about 50 blog posts about different states that day! I made games for both of my posts, so check back on the 25th.
Anyway, people who travel to northern Minnesota often hope to see a moose during their trip. So, I checked out Looking for a Moose. Others hope to see owls as right now several kinds of owls are coming here from Canada due to an irruption year. I was thinking about owls (what is new) and moose, and even Buffalo for my upcoming South Dakota post. And here is what I came up with, the 1000 Owl, or 1000 Moose, or 1000 Buffalo math problem. This is a 29 page PDF but I guess I got carried away with the art as it is a huge file. free-owl-moose-buffalo-math-problem The instructions are all in the printable! *Note: The book is NOT required for this math problem. This is a gifted ed math problem if given to first or second graders.
