School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 1-2-Full-color illustrations, plentiful white space, and a large font make these beginning math titles appealing. In each one, large-print text faces a full-page, full-color photo. Tools looks at various objects, including rulers, measuring cups, scales, clocks, and the like. Ribke introduces grouping by exploring the animals at a dog show. For example, pups are grouped by those breeds whose ears stand up versus those that hang down. Order illustrates the concept of first, second, third, etc., by looking at pictures from a trip to the carnival. Finally, Slumber Party presents basic story problems as a girl plans a sleepover, wondering about how many hours she has to get ready, how many sleeping bags she needs, etc. Each title includes a useful picture glossary. These small books will serve well for libraries in need of the most basic introductions to these concepts.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Library, UT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
