Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna Brumby
One hamster, two sisters, three kittens: Murphy and Dunbar have combined snappy narrative and friendly pictures into a nice level one counting book in the "MathStart" series-picture books created to encourage mathematics practice in everyday activities. Every Buddy Counts is not revolutionary in concept or delivery, but is engaging and sound and does conclude with two pages of suggestions for additional activities to support the concepts included in the book. There has been a real need for easy-level mathematics books, and the MathStarts appears to be a good addition for this subject area.
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
