Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Porter
Sisters Kris and Pat are told they need to share a room to make way for a new baby. The sisters experiment with basic geometry as they use sticky tape to divide their shared room first into rectangles and then into triangles. In the end, they realize that sharing the whole room is the best choice. Both the story and the expressive illustrations avoid a common stereotype of mathematicians as white males, providing a positive role model for girls. Marilyn Burns is a well-known author of educational math activities used by teachers in many elementary level classrooms. She provides a letter to parents and suggestions for math activities to use with the book for additional learning. Both are valuable to parents wishing to take part in their children's education. This book is part of the "Hello Math" series, which includes more than a dozen books for kids, ages 3 to 9.
