## Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Once they start, children just can't seem to get enough of numbers and counting. The logical next step after counting is of course adding, and this interesting flipcard guide will be great fun for budding mathematicians. The flip cards are broken down into three separate packs (adding two numbers up to five, two numbers up to 10 and three numbers up to 10) that are intended to be mastered in sequential order for the greatest understanding. Each card is two sided and asks the learner to count and then add the given number of objects. They can then flip the card and check their answers on the back. The objects used for adding (ducks, dots, dolls, clowns, cats, cars) are fun and familiar. The best part of this guide is that it comes with detailed, howto instructions on guiding children through the process. It is easy enough for children to do on their own, however, once they understand the function of the plus and equals signs. Also, included are helpful tips for parents on including adding concepts into everyday life. This would be an outstanding addition to any home or school library and would also be excellent to take along when traveling. Also available are: I Can Spell, I Can Count, and I Can Subtract. 2000, Kingfisher, Ages 4 to 7, \$9.95. Reviewer: Trina Heidt
