Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Patterns are found everywhere. In this book from the "Math Around Us" series, children look for patterns in a museum. Lines, shapes and colors make up different patterns. The color photographs throughout the book show different museum pieces with patterns. The photograph of a bird's eye view of a spiral staircase illustrates line patterns. The museum window is made up of lines and shape patterns. Adults may need to read the text aloud so that children may focus on the content. A helpful chapter is "Find the Pattern." The illustration on the left page shows a pattern (e.g., increasing size) and the photograph on the right page shows a museum piece with the pattern. The pattern decreasing length from long to short is illustrated in a picture, and children are asked to look for the pattern in the photograph of an animal skeleton. There is a picture glossary and an index that cover the objects and features using in the patterns. At the back of the book, there are a few suggestions for parents and teachers to support children's understanding of patterns. Children can look for patterns in their immediate surroundings. This book in the series provides a basic introduction to patterns for young readers. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
