Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Murphy has written several math stories for young children, and this entry in the "MathStart" series features addition equations. Rhymed couplets set up an addition equation that is solved in a brightly-framed space within a full-page illustration. The premise is engaging-a trucker is passed on the road by many open flatbed trucks carrying all sorts of wild animals. The math really does take a front seat without overpowering the slight story or the appealing illustrations. The only problem is that the whole book leads up to a predictable climax. The series has been very successful; and this is a worthwhile addition to it.
