Children's Literature
The Math Monsters—Addison, Mina, Multiplex and Spli—are having a party. Their friend Big Bill wants to come, but he does not know how to get to their castle. Follow along with the Math Monsters as they work to make an increasingly accurate map to help Big Bill find their party. Entertaining and amusing, this book is an excellent way to introduce children to mapmaking concepts in a non-threatening way. The book uses photographs from the Math Monsters public television series as well as simple, easy-to-read text. Multiple questions throughout the book actively engage the reader and related activities listed at the book's end give children and adults an opportunity to put the book's concepts into practice. The Math Monsters public television series was developed in cooperation with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The "Math Monsters" series of books is designed to meet and support NCTM Standards for Pre-K-2 mathematics content and process instruction. Mapping, this book's focus, helps children organize the world around them by developing a sense of direction, distance and location. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 5 up.
