Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Simple math concepts are presented through the animals and plants of a coral reef. Even the concept of zero is demonstrated twice. The problems are presented in four-line rhymes, and then the numbers, words, and math symbols that make up the equation are also written out. Each bordered page contains colorful, large pictures of the creatures. Don't miss the insouciant lionfish staring out from one of the pages. At the end, factual information is provided about coral reefs and the animals depicted.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Beautiful illustrations and a tedious rhyming text add up to disappointment in this counting book. Hulme uses eight-line singsong rhymes to show sea creatures on each double-page spread. Simple examples of addition and subtraction are introduced, and the equation is shown at the bottom of the page. For example, "A stingray digs two sandy clams,/Down on the ocean floor./Then plows around until it finds/ One...two...three...four more./It chews three clams for breakfast/And crunches three for brunch-/So all the clams are gobbled up/And none are left for lunch." At the bottom of the page is the equation: 2 clams + 4 clams - 3 clams - 3 clams = 0 clams. The illustrations of marine life are softly hued; children will enjoy looking at them. There is a description of the animals in the back of the book, but the mathematical concepts are never discussed or explained. There is a great demand for beginning math books, but Sea Sums will only be useful to adults who are willing to spend a lot of time getting young listeners ready for these concepts.-JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
