$ 8.99 $ 2.75
A village girl outsmarts a king by asking him to double a portion of rice every day for 30 days in order to feed the hungry.
summary: This book is great for showing how a number can get really big if repeatedly doubled. In the story, a village girl outsmarts a selfish king by asking him to double a portion of rice every day for 30 days in order to feed the hungry. She wins! Younger grades will get the idea even though the actual math concept (multiplication / exponents) is better suited for older grades. Teachers of older grades can turn this book into an entire lesson. by Demi
