{Zero the Hero: Joan Holub}

{Synopsis} – Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. That’s what all the other numbers think of Zero. He doesn’t add anything in addition. He’s of no use in division. And don’t even ask what he does in multiplication. (Hint: Poof!) But Zero knows he’s worth a lot, and when the other numbers get into trouble, he swoops in to prove that his talents are innumerable.

{My thoughts} – Zero the Hero is a Hero in every sense of the word. He is the number Zero and he is needed to solve math equations that wouldn’t be able to be solved without him. Zero the Hero goes through the book feeling like he is a nothing a no number because in a sense he is – his number is Zero which means nothing. But eventually the other numbers start to realize how much they need him and him how much he needs them and he becomes a Hero by the end of the book.

I really believe my seven year-old son will enjoy this book. He is always interested in reading books that he can read out loud. A lot of the time I ask him to read quietly to himself. This book has eye catching illustrations that go hand and hand with the story written between it’s pages.

I am truly in love with the writing style of Miss Holub, she has such a knack for words. Her children’s books are so nicely written and illustrated. I really recommend her books for parents looking for books for their children. She also has Middle Grade Series that I have been reviewing as well, look into them, they are some of the best books I have read and I am sure you and you children will enjoy them as much as my children and I are.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
