Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
The focus for the "Math All Around" series is to teach about math found in everyday life. In so doing, the series helps with reading skills and critical thinking. Large-print text and short sentences work well. Real life photos that closely match the text add to the fun in learning and help students see concrete examples of what they are doing. Examples of leaves, apples, deer, rabbits, sparrows, turtles, frogs, fish, and geese are used to inform, with simple and then more difficult addition problems. Steps for each math addition problem are explained in the text. An additional plus appears in the form of two pages near the book's end, which tell about helping the forest trees by recycling school paper. This relates the action to a child's own school and shows addition problems while doing so. The simple glossary consists of these terms: addends, addition, associative property, commutative property, equal sign, plus sign, and sum. Additional sources and Web sites, as well as a concise index, round out the book.
