Ralph freaks out when Flora picks the thirteenth bean in Bean Thirteen by Matthew McElligott. Ralph is sure that thirteen is an unlucky number! Always the idea-grasshopper, Flora invites April for dinner. As Flora and Ralph separate the beans into three piles with four beans each, Ralph is horrified to discover that the one bean left over is the dreaded "bean thirteen!" "That's odd," Flora says. So Flora invites Joe to dinner, too, and begins to make four piles of three beans each. What do you think happens next? Keep reading because the conclusion is really funny!

What a hysterical introduction to the skills of odd / even and division!
