He also has extensive experience in the world of educational publishing. Drawing on all these talents, Stuart J. Murphy brings a unique perspective to the MathStart series. In MathStart books, pictures do more than tell stories; they teach math. Stuart J. Murphy and his wife, Nancy, live in Boston. Scott Nash has illustrated many books for children, including Betsy Who Cried Wolf! by Gail Carson Levine, Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp by Carol Diggory Shields, Over the Moon by Rachel Vail, and Oh, Tucker! by Steven Kroll. He lives with his wife, Nancy, and their dog, Zephyr, in Peaks Island, Maine.


PreS-Gr 1-A simple story that explains ordinal numbers. Four pets are entered in a backyard dog show and are identified as first, second, third, and fourth. Following this order, they each do a trick as planned, except for Henry, the last dog to be introduced. He is reluctant to perform until he sees the dog biscuit the young master of ceremonies pulls out. The audience cheers as Henry knocks the boy down and gives him "a big sloppy kiss." Some children may wonder why Henry is crowned "king" of the show, since the other dogs obeyed. However, the numerical concepts are sequential and simple enough for young children to follow. The watercolor cartoons fill the pages with action. Suggestions for parents to help children focus on math concepts while reading this book are included along with the titles of three other picture books that present the same concept. A good choice for school libraries to support the math curriculum.-Joan Zaleski, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY
