Young children need repeated and directed experience with real objects to become comfortable with the concepts behind such math skills as measuring, identifying patterns, solving problems, recognizing shapes, and calculating sums and differences. The editors at Time-Life provide these opportunities in the form of poems, games, stories, and activities in this entry in the "I Love Math Series." The theme is food, the text and pictures are enticing, and the presentation of math for young readers and their adult math coaches is clear and thorough. It's all in the name of good fun and good practice. Peanuts, french fries, and veggies are not just for eating anymore!
