Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This invaluable book links national math standards with picture books and folktales published primarily within the last five years. Topics covered include numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis and probability, problem solving, and reasoning and proof. There are generally three to four lessons per unit, each focusing on a different book. Rosemary Wells's Bunny Money inspires small group role-playing after which youngsters describe their own shopping sprees, creating money problems along the way. After reading Janet Stevens's Tops and Bottoms, students learn that fractions, too, have tops (numerators) and bottoms (denominators). Each lesson includes a time frame, list of materials, required transparencies, and step-by-step instructions. Additional activities encourage primary-grade children to apply their newfound knowledge and share their discoveries. There are also recommendations for assessing student learning and extending the lesson to other areas of the curriculum such as language arts or social studies. The ideas are creative and incorporate manipulatives, art, research, and writing. There are also adaptations for auditory, motor, visual, and second-language special needs. Libraries will want to stock up on the cited titles so that teachers can make the most of this useful resource.-Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Lessons help students apply and practice new math skills and concepts through activities using calculators, manipulatives, computers, games, performances, and problems solving.
