Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa J. Rickey
Brightly colored photographs carefully matched with simple and direct text facilitate children's mathematical thinking and comprehension. Brief chapters entitled "Keeping Score," "Finding Favorites," "Keeping Track," and "Watching Birds" define and demonstrate how tally charts are made and illustrate the forms that such graphs can take. For example, a series of photographs illustrates that "We can use tally marks to keep score" in a game of pickup sticks. "We can keep a tally on paper too. Tallies help us count things as they happen." The tally mark concept is reinforced with further examples that ask, "Which flavor of ice cream do people like best?" and tell how readers can "use tallies to count cars on a trip." Sections also show how to "use tallies to keep track of birds" at a birdfeeder. Other features integral to the book's design include a table of contents, glossary, a list of further readings, internet sites, and an index. Teachers can use this book as a read aloud in primary classrooms and for early readers' independent reading. This nonfiction picture book is part of the "Making Graphs Series," which introduces young readers to graphing concepts. Reviewer: Melissa J. Rickey

PreS-Gr 2- These titles present math concepts in an easy-to-read/read-aloud format. The first book illustrates how to sort items and represent quantity using horizontal and vertical bars on a graph. Toy animals, fruit, pet type, and hair color are used as examples. Pictographs introduces the idea of organizing data to "show how many" with picture representations. Comparisons are made on a variety of topics: spotted and solid-color bunnies, how students get to school (walking, bus, and bikes), beverage preferences, and the kinds of flowers in an arrangement. One page shows the number of seeds planted in relation to the number of flowers that grew. Pie Graphs begins with a strawberry pie and six children. Over the first few pages, readers are led step-by-step through the process of charting how many had a piece and how many did not. The book suggests using a pie chart to graph favorite foods, the number of girls versus boys on a team, and the occurrence of jellybean flavors in a packet. The last title is devoted to keeping count with tally marks recorded in groups of five. This concept is illustrated with pick-up sticks and then translated to pen and paper. Sports preferences, the probability of heads or tails on coin flips, and score keeping are shown. Each title encourages readers to create their own graphs. Large, colorful photographs depict the concepts and feature ethnically diverse children. The photos and graphs complement the controlled-vocabulary texts, with a few sentences per page. Good choices for math collections.-Alison Grant, Ruby S. Thomas Elementary School, Las Vegas, NV
