Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa J. Rickey
Brightly colored photographs carefully matched with simple and direct text facilitate children's mathematical thinking comprehension. Short chapters entitled "Animals," "Making a Bar Graph," "Fruit," "Friends," and "Graphing Foods" define and demonstrate how to make a bar graph and illustrate the forms that such graphs can take. For example, a series of photographs illustrate animals being sorted into rows to see which has the most numbers. "We have made a bar graph. Bar graphs compare the amount of each kind." The next series of photographs show how to transfer this concept to paper graphs, which can "go up and down, or from side to side." The bar graph concept is reinforced with further examples that compare numbers of apples, oranges, or bananas bought at the market. "Let's write the name of the fruit on the side. The numbers can go along the bottom…. We have the most oranges. The orange bar is the longest." Additional examples compare favorite shirt colors and show how a graph changes depending on whether food are sorted by color, type, or first letter of the food's name. Other features integral to the book's design include a table of contents, glossary, a list of further readings, internet sites, and an index. Teachers can use this book as a read aloud in primary classrooms and for early readers' independent reading. This nonfiction picture book is part of the "Making Graphs Series," which introduces young readers to graphing concepts. Reviewer: Melissa J. Rickey
