Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers can grab a basket and the 10 traceable cookies on the inside cover of Red Riding Hood's Math Adventure by Lalie Harcourt and Ricki Wortzman, illus. by Capucine Mazille, and join the red-caped heroine on her trip to Grandma's house. Various fairy tale characters dot the path, and youngsters must choose whether to give away 2, 1, or 0 cookies to each, with the aid of a die-cut wheel then subtract to determine the remainder. (July) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
In a new twist on the Red Riding Hood theme, a hipper Red Riding Hood makes some cookies herself then sets out to visit Grandma's house. There is a math component to the story, as the reader must keep track of the dozen cookies that Red Riding Hood starts out with and then shares along the way. A paper wheel is integrated into some pages, and as the reader encounters each character who asks for cookies, the wheel is turned to provide one of three different math options. One option may be addition and another subtraction, so that the story can be used again and again. The text is written in rhyme and includes characters from other Mother Goose stories such as "Miss Muffet" and "Old King Cole." The illustrations as well as the rhyming text are colorful and comical, and the surprise ending adds to the fun. Children may need some assistance to get started but should then enjoy sharing the story and computations with friends. Individual pictures of cookies are included to be traced and cut out for those who need a hands-on experience as well as explicit instructions. 2001, Charlesbridge, $14.95. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Poor Red Riding Hood. Not only does she have to think about talking to strangers and staying on the path, but she also has lots of decisions to make en route, all of them dealing with the 12 cookies that she is taking to her grandmother. Along the way, Old Mother Hubbard, the old woman in the shoe, a hungry king, and a grouchy troll all want her to share them. Readers must turn a wheel to show the various demands, the child's responses, and the number of cookies given to each one. Based on those facts, youngsters then determine how many cookies make it to Red Riding Hood's destination-which turns out to be a surprise birthday party for her. Colorful, comic illustrations add to the gimmicks of this mildly amusing math adventure. The idea is appealing, but even by combining nursery rhymes with simple math in a marginally interactive format, the book falls short of the mark as a story.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
