K-Gr 3-In the first title, each spread shows pictures of arctic creatures, with a problem in addition included in the text. "Female caribou live with their babies. Male caribou often live alone. Add the caribou: 3 + 1 = 4." Students can count the animals in the large, color photographs and connect their counting with the equation. Chickens describes how to count by twos, fives, and tens. For example, one page shows a photo of a starfish, with the text noting that it has five arms. The facing page shows 3 photos of the starfish: "5, 10, 15-you know what to do!" Rhyming adds to the book's appeal. The third title includes illustrations of bar and pie graphs. The text describes having a bake sale and determining which treat sold the most. The different graph types are explained, using photos of cookies, doughnuts, and pies in conjunction with them to make easy connections for readers. Although these titles fill a need for very simple math books for beginning readers, they will probably appeal more to teachers than to children.-Karen Stuppi, Harmony Elementary School, Middletown, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
