K-Gr 2-These small-format books are useful for one-on-one instruction, for small groups, or for mathematics centers. Patterns features an "ab" pattern along the bottom of each page. Examples include patterns using shapes, color, size, numbers, letters, fruit, shoes, musical instruments, and the students themselves in various poses. Adding uses numbers from 0 to 12. Examples with manipulatives including counting markers, marbles (identified as stones in the book), colored cubes, and uniflex cubes help students visualize the process, set up the problem, and find the solution. Zoo introduces counting from 0 to 20 and comparing those numbers using the terms "fewer" and "more." These three titles have informative color photographs that help relate the information to the world outside of school. City introduces the numbers 0 to 30; however, the artwork for this title is simplistic and poorly drawn. The "I Can Do Math" series (Gareth Stevens, 2004) introduces the same concepts for the same grade level and has short quizzes that reinforce the skills presented. If more material is needed to supplement the mathematics curriculum, these first three titles are adequate additions.-Ann Joslin, Fort LeBoef School District, Waterford, PA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
