Less Than Zero is perfect for teaching negative numbers to second, third, and fourth graders. Perry the Penguin needs 9 clams to buy an ice scooter--but he's not very good at saving. As Perry earns, spends, finds, loses, and borrows clams, a simple line graph demonstrates the concept of negative numbers.
