Children's LiteratureThis is the bilingual version of this book and is written in Spanish and English. The "Glossary," "Note to Educators and Parents," and "Index" are in both languages. The book is written in first person present tense, which draws children in as they learn about baseball. The text is written in English with the Spanish translation below. The photos enhance the text and help the reader solve the math questions on the facing page. Some of the math concepts used include counting, calculating change after a purchase, and addition. The math questions for problem solving range from very easy ones such as counting, to more difficult ones where the student has to use the information in the text and decide whether to add or subtract and then answer the question. For this reason this book may best be used in a small group or one-on-one sessions with a parent or teacher to help guide the child to figure out the problems. The answers are at the end of the book. This is a great supplement to an ESL class, as well as for elementary math curriculum. Children learn how math is used in real life by studying and using a scoreboard. 2006, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 4 to 8.
