Children's LiteratureOne morning the Math Monsters—Addison, Split, Multiplex and Mina—are having pancakes. They love pancakes so much that they decide to open a pancake shop. But there is a problem. The Math Monsters like four different kinds of pancakes, but they only have three mixing bowls. The Monsters decide to survey their friends to figure out which three kinds of pancakes are most popular in Monster Town. Entertaining and amusing, this book is an excellent way to introduce children to the concepts of data collection and data representation in a non-threatening way. The book uses photographs from the Math Monsters public television series as well as simple, easy-to-read text. Multiple questions throughout the book actively engage the reader and related activities listed at the back give children and adults an opportunity to reinforce the book's concepts by putting them into practice. The Math Monsters public television series was developed in cooperation with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The "Math Monsters" series of books is designed to meet and support NCTM Standards for Pre-K-2 mathematics content and process instruction. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 5 up.
