School Library Journal/Series Made Simple, April 2021

With an emphasis on building literacy skills for emerging readers, these books present mathematical concepts such as adding, sorting, and identifying patterns. Each title provides several examples of the area of math being discussed, along with a simple sentence explaining it. For example, Naming Money shows various types of change, and Counting Cars shows increasing numbers of different colored cars (“I count four cars. The cars are red”). The repetitive sentence structure is designed to aid beginning readers, and page layouts include colorful photographs that align with the text on the page. This is helpful for both comprehension and for practicing the math skill being explored. A visual glossary is provided at the end. ­VERDICT These slim titles effectively combine early literacy skills with a chance to practice basic mathematics.
