## Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Mann
The carnival setting for this book provides a fun way to learn math skills. The story teaches kids how to divide by filling seats on each ride. Beginning with a group of eleven friends, the fun starts when each ride requires a certain number of kids to fill the seat. How many are left over once you divide up the group? Each ride opportunity provides the setting for division. The concepts are presented in text and figures on each page. A special graphic box allows readers to count and follow numerical concepts. Bright illustrations re-enforce the mathematics. The book includes an end section that offers adults and kids other suggestions for incorporating math concepts into the story and real life situations.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3This series of introductory math books presents various concepts on different levels. The Best Vacation Ever shows how a family decides where to go on vacation (problem solving); Divide and Ride shows how 11 children are able to sort themselves into smaller groups in order to go on different rides at a carnival. In Every Buddy, a young girl counts her friends and her pets. All books are simply written but very clear, and concepts are explained in a number of ways. The cartoon illustrations are of average quality and capture the many characters' diverse activities. Suggestions are presented at the end for related activities, such as planning a picnic, dividing snacks, and measuring to make cookies. An entertaining approach to progressive levels of math concepts.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
