What Reading Level is Morgan and the Forty Thieves?

As a Chapter Book series the Morgan tales can be considered to fall at the end of the Chapter Book levels, just before Middle Reader books.  The sentence structure is designed to be simple and straightforward so that the book is accessible to younger readers, while the story is complex and intriguing enough to engage older readers.

 

Why is the Morgan series Math based?

My daughter got to third grade and came home from school early on to declare that she HATED math.  I realized that third grade is when math tends to get more rote, and I always felt that math in a narrative context would be so much more engaging.  I also wanted to introduce kids to the world of math from a more conceptual point of view because thinking about math as rote exercises is boring, but thinking about math as part of the pattern and language of our vast, natural universe is fascinating.

The first Morgan book is dedicated primarily to a step-by-step process of concepts that build toward easy multiplication.  It begins with skip counting, and then moves to adding equal sized groups, and then multiplication.  There are also addition problems, logic puzzles, a pattern puzzle, and a beginning demonstration of comparing numbers—an early and fairly simple depiction of ratios.
