Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Raker Collins
The young child is introduced to the concept of a circle in the pages of this book. Although this is part of a "Math Fun" series, the circle is explained only as a shape and not a number. It is defined as "a closed, curved line made up of all the points that are the same distance from a center point." It is related to many common circular shapes a school child might encounter in a day: wheels, coins, cookies, plates, or cakes. The letter "o" is also shown to be a circle. The diameter and radius of a circle are illustrated by cutting a cake. A sphere is described as a kind of circle. Somewhat muted watercolor and gouache illustrations demonstrate these and other circles and spheres. Among the school crowd are a monkey, an alligator, an elephant, and a mole. Dotted lines are drawn around some of the circles to show their perfect shapes. However, a two-page spread of a rug emphasizes a shape that really looks like an oval and could be confusing to a child. All the other circles are shown in one dimension on the page; this is the only one that is given a perspective that makes the diameter look uneven. At the end, there is a game for two children to play. It aims to stretch the child's imagination in thinking of all things that might be circles. A glossary, a list of references, and an index are included. Reviewer: Carol Raker Collins, Ph.D.

Meet the Author

Molly Blaisdell has an insatiable curiosity that leads to lots of questions. Her favorite one is "Why"? Honestly, she feels the best children’s books are really for everyone. She loves to spin out stories and is the author of 29 children’s books, with nine Picture Window Books titles. Molly inspires writers with her weekly blog, Seize the Day. She likes to laugh out loud until she has to take something for the headache. She enjoys yoga, art, reading books and fruit smoothies. Molly grew up in Texas, is the mom of four wonderful children, and currently lives in the wilds of Woodinville, Washington, with her husband, Tim.

I always thought of books like a treasure chest, and the illustrations, like windows to look inside.
My mother says, I was born with a pencil in hand...my left hand. I drew before I was able to speak.
When I was eight years old, we moved into a new home, a big one. Our hobbies-room in this new home was so white that I had an idea. I decided to make it more colorful and I filled the walls with my characters. The ceiling was the only place that was not touched by my pencils. This was the beginning of my artist's freelance career.
Since then, my funny characters have stayed with me everywhere, at grade school first, then at University in Rome where I studied Art and Literature.
Now, the characters share the attic where I work, with me and my sweet black dog, Luna.
