Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Raker Collins
Here, the child is introduced to the concept of triangles. As part of the "Math Fun" series, the explanations of what determines a triangle and the many types of triangles found in and around a child's world are very clear. The book begins: "If you were a triangle, you could be seen on the street, in a band, or at the kitchen table." The reader is taken on a step-by-step trip to the playground, store, bike race, grazing area, bedroom, and so forth. The three-sided polygon is seen everywhere. It can be a right triangle, an isosceles triangle, or an equilateral triangle. Triangles can be combined to form rectangles, diamonds, or squares. Although the ins and outs of triangles may seem complex for a child, each example is presented and illustrated in a way that makes it all comprehensible. Dotted lines around triangles, labels and diagrams provide the extra guidance needed. The watercolor and gouache illustrations are cute and on the mark. Monkeys, camels, children, cows, and puppies are all part of the landscape to discovery. Even the relationship of triangles to solid shapes like pyramids and ice cream cones is nicely presented. A quiz tests the young learner at the end of the book; answers are provided. A glossary, a list of references, and an index complete the volume. Reviewer: Carol Raker Collins, Ph.D.
