STEM Friday: Zero the Hero


Zero the Hero
by Joan Holub (Author) and Tom Lichtenheld (Illustrator)
40 pages

Booktalk: 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.

Snippet: Unlike most numbers, Zero believed himself to be a hero. He just needed a chance to prove it.

  1. I love the title! And without zero, how would we write 10?
    Over at Archimedes Notebook it’s all about time with “Just a Second” by Steve Jenkins.

  2. This looks like a fantastic book! Thank you for recommending it. I’m looking forward to reading it with my son.

    I’ve written about The Humblebee Hunter by Deborah Hopkinson and Jen Corace. This book is a great introduction to Charles Darwin and his family.

  3. Sounds like a great way to learn place values. I am putting the M in STEM today, too, with Mathemagic! at
