In this podcast, Farah Salman introduces listeners to the book Shark Swimathon by Stuart Murphy.

Introduction
Shark Swimathon can easily be integrated across content areas in math and English. It is a level 3 (ages 7 and up) book in the MathStart series and covers subtraction with and without regrouping. While young readers excitedly read on to see if the sharks will be able to swim the laps needed to win the prize, they learn how to subtract two digit numbers.
