Hungry Greater Than and Scary Less Than Children'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.
