Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-4
In Treasure Hunt , readers are part of a team of explorers in Peru. The authors incorporate information on the geography, history, wildlife, and significant buildings in the country with relevant mathematical problems to solve. The math skills include figuring out flight times, shapes, compass points, measuring length, odd and even numbers, estimating, measuring with a ruler, fractions, identifying and predicting patterns, interpreting a pictogram, and right angles. Zookeeper follows the same format with readers participating in activities in a zoo from eight in the morning until six at night, learning about reptiles, elephants, big cats, birds, giraffes, and other animals. Mathematical concepts include the terms clockwise and counterclockwise, right angles, telling time, scales, adding, subtracting, counting by 10s, interpreting charts, determining a range of numbers, measurements, counting money, and calculating change. Numerous color photographs, charts, and diagrams; the interactive approach; the large font size; and the easy-to-follow organizational scheme enhance the usefulness of these books. These titles, like Greg Tang's Math-terpieces: The Art of Problem-Solving (Scholastic, 2003) and Ann Whitehead Nagda's Cheetah Math (Holt, 2007) demonstrate the usefulness of mathematics in real-life examples.
