Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The bugs in this book are the type that you would see in animated cartoons. They are getting ready to put on a big show and as they go about their work they form various patterns. Ladybugs have matching spots and butterflies have pairs of wings. The ants arrange the flowers in a colorful pattern of blue and red and perform their dance number in perfect step. The fireflies almost stop the show with their beautiful circular pattern in the dark sky, but the grand finale has the participants all organized into a giant pyramid. The patterns are easily identified and parents and teachers can have fun asking kids to point them out or predict what should come next. Part of the "All Aboard Math Reader" series. A Station Stop 1 book. 2003, Grosset & Dunlap/Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, Ages 4 to 7.

    Cute

    This book was cute but isn't a great a tool for teaching patterns. I would use it as a way to reinforce the concept but not to teach it.
