Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
A referee's shirt is an obvious choice for demonstrating people patterns, as are marching bands and a set of triplets, but how about a pair of fancy painted fingernails? These are but a few of the techniques employed to aid the reader in discovering patterns in real life. Once patterns are very simply defined, the text takes the reader on a colorful romp to find the patterns created by the things people wear and the things people do. Young readers will likely not realize that their fun-filled read, which uses full-page, full-color photography and clear, simple text, is actually helping them build foundational math skills. Using full-page, full-color photography and clear, simple text, young readers will likely not realize that their fun-filled read is actually helping them build foundational math skills. Geared toward first grade level readers, this book in the "A+" series will appeal to pre-kindergarten students through second graders. Like most in the nonfiction genre, the book's format includes a table of contents, glossary, and index. Bonus features include a bibliography, a guide to internet sites, and people pattern facts sections.
School Library Journal

Gr 1-2 - In each book, a pattern is defined as a "repeated shape or color." The bright, colorful photographs are sure to appeal to children. Unfortunately, the series is plagued by inconsistent quality. Some pictures contain recognizable patterns-a caterpillar's stripes, a spider web, a row of gummy bears, a referee's shirt, a girl's beaded braids, and a stone walkway. Other examples are not as obvious and may even be confusing-triplets as a "natural-born pattern," an urban fire escape, kiwifruit seeds. Each title contains a glossary that defines unfamiliar terms, but young readers are not going to flip from picture to glossary. It isn't clear if these books are meant to be an introduction to patterns for young children or a "spot the pattern" challenge for those who are slightly older. Some health-conscious adults may object to Food Patterns' emphasis on junk food. Animal Patternsis the most effective title.-Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
