Overview

Blue Ribbon Blueberry Pie. If the bear cubs gather enough nuts, seeds and blueberries, Mama Bear has agreed to make her special, lip-smacking-good pie.

Developmentally appropriate and correlated to school grade levels and the curriculum standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, MathStart  can give children a head start!Blue Ribbon Blueberry Pie is the best—but do these bear cubs have enough ingredients to bake one? Regrouping their berries, nuts, and seeds by tens and ones reveals that one cub has not done her fair bear share.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Another in the series of "MathStart" books, this one deals with regrouping. Mama Bear tells her four little cubs to go into the woods and gather enough berries, nuts and seeds to make her famous berry pie. If all the cubs help, they will all receive a share of the pie. As usual, one bear is lazy and gathers nothing, but that clever Mama Bear gives her one more chance to come up with her share. As the cubs gather the various ingredients, Mama Bear adds and regroups, using illustrations, to come to the right proportions. A nice introduction to this concept. "MathStart" books come in three levels, and this one is at level two.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2In this math lesson in story form, four bear cubs gather nuts, then blueberries, and finally seeds for their mother's Blue Ribbon Blueberry Pie. All of the contents of their baskets are then placed in sets of 10; because only three did their fair share of the work, a tally of the ingredients shows that there aren't enough for the pie. Then the fourth little cub runs to collect everything and a recount, again in sets of 10s, shows that there are now enough nuts, berries, and seeds for mother's dessert. Each will get a fair bear share. The addition problems are clearly shown. Each bear's items are shown in numeral, pictorial, and word form, although the final addition is just in numeral form. A two-page appendix gives suggestions of more things to count in everyday life such as cars, crayons, kitchen supplies, and even trees and dogs. This seems a bit heavy-handed for the story, yet too slim for those needing an explanatory math text and practice. It will serve caregivers and teachers who need to kickstart their common-sense teaching skills.Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

    Entertaining

    Entertaining but not what I expected. Thought it was a workbook.

    We like all of the MathStart books!

    I bought several MathStart books when my daughter was young and am now reading those to my younger son. I added this book to our collection and enjoyed the story as well as the math lessons (grouping by 10s to count up a large number of items).
