Reviews

PreS-Gr 2-These books continue the adventures of mouse siblings Wanda and Albert as they explore math concepts hidden in brightly colored illustrations. The stories take them to the ice rink and the attic in their home, and introduce readers to their cousin, Pete. By listening to or reading about Albert and Wanda's math-centered adventures, early learners see how to best tackle problems and find solutions. The harmonious and appealing text and illustrations present many opportunities for discussion of other topics, such as helping others, staying safe, getting along with siblings and friends, completing chores before play, and thinking about the best way to solve problems.-Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN (c) Copyright 2013.

In this introduction to triangles, squares, circles, and rectangles, Albert and Wanda join a crew of rodent friends on an icy pond for some geometric 'mice skating.' Melmon's bright, simply drawn cartoon illustrations help compensate for a perfunctory plotline. There are also pages of discussion questions and enhancement activities--making the learning fun (or at least painless) for all concerned. This is a useful addition both to the Mouse Math series and to the shelf of math concept books for the youngest. --Booklist Online
