Guinea Pigs Add upBook
In bouncy, appealing rhyme, young readers are introduced to a classroom with a hairy problem-guinea pigs that keep adding and adding! From one lonely guinea pig to two to five and all the way up to twenty, the kids find that having a classroom pet is more than they bargained for. Finally, each student gets to take a guinea pig home, until they are left with zero. That is, until Mr. Gilbert brings in a rabbit with a growing belly . . . !
From master storyteller Margery Cuyler and with energetic illustrations from Tracey Campbell Pearson, Guinea Pigs Add Up is perfect for budding mathematicians-or anyone with a love for unruly animals.

SummaryAdd a Summary
The teacher tells his students that he will be getting them a class pet. They are all trying to think of what it might be. On Monday the students come to class and see a guinea pig in a cage. This is their new class pet. The children decide that he looks lonely and needs a friend, so their teacher gets another guinea pig to keep it company. It turns out to be a girl and the guinea pigs have babies. They keep having babies and eventually there are 20 guinea pigs in the class room. The teacher decides that they need to be adopted and ask the students and parents of the class if they can take them. The students adopt all of the guinea pigs. The class now has no pet again so the teacher decides to get them a rabbit. On the last page it says that the rabbits belly is growing and that it is a girl! Uh Oh!!
