Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Candy and space ships both get kid's attention. Here they are both employed to teach the math concept, percentages. A number of packages of Twizzlers are on the math teachers desk the day they are to start learning about percentages. Mini-space ships appear and offer to teach percentages in exchange for Twizzlers. We see 100 red Twizzlers and see that each one is 1% of the total. We then watch the introduction of black Twizzlers and watch the percentages change. But you don't need 100 of something to do percentages. Groups of 10 Twizzlers are divided into groups of eight and two and nine and one. Although most of the material covered relies on the Twizzlers for graphic examples, percentages of money and the concept of a batting average also are shown. This is a graphic look at a math topic that is well suited to this kind of treatment. The artwork is realistic and the mini space ships and candy will make it easier for kids to stay interested. 2001, Cartwheel Books, $5.95. Ages 6 to 9. Reviewer: Kristin Harris
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This colorful book uses Twizzlers as the device to clarify the concepts and will definitely get students' attention. The page that illustrates 100% has 90 red Twizzlers and 10 black ones arranged across the spread. However, readers who are not familiar with math may be confused as the terms "numerator" and "denominator" are introduced on page 2 but not defined until page 10 and on occasion a term is used in its own definition. In addition, the use of a talking spaceship seems unnecessarily juvenile and does not relate clearly to the candy theme. This disjointed approach is also apparent in the sudden introduction of baseball statistics as percentages; they are an abrupt curveball in the normal flow of the text and examples. Also, the mention of "rounding off" and the term "non-terminating decimals" on the next to last page create unnecessary confusion. A book with potential if used judiciously.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
