Hungry Greater Than and Scary Less ThanChildren's Play Excerpt:

Pix Six:Hi my name is Pix Six and I think Steven Seven will eat me.

Terrific Ten:Why?

Pix Six:Because seven ate nine.

Terrific Ten:Seven couldn’t have eaten nine because nine is greater than seven.

Pix Six:What does greater than mean?

Terrific Ten:When you compare two numbers, there are two possible results. The numbers are equal, or one number is larger than the other number. Nine is larger than seven.

Pix Six:Steven Seven is greater than me.

Terrific Ten:I see your problem. If seven is greater than six, then six is less than seven.

Pix Six:Here comes Steven Seven! Don’t tell him I’m here. (hides)
