Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
Waffles are an obvious choice for demonstrating food patterns, as are sliced onions and the inside of a pea pod, but how about an alternating design created by red and green apples? These are but a few of the techniques employed to aid the reader in discovering patterns in real life. Once patterns are very simply defined, the text takes the reader on a colorful romp through the world of food to find sweet, fruit and vegetable, and meal patterns. Young readers will likely not realize that their fun-filled read, which uses full-page, full-color photography and clear, simple text, is actually helping them build foundational math skills. Using full-page, full-color photography and clear, simple text, young readers will likely not realize that their fun-filled read is actually helping them build foundational math skills. Geared toward first grade level readers, this book in the "A+" series will appeal to pre-kindergarten students through second graders. Like most in the nonfiction genre, the book's format includes a table of contents, glossary, and index. Bonus features include a bibliography, a guide to internet sites, and food pattern facts sections.
