K-Gr 2--These beginning readers are part math, part animal books. Each spread features a few sentences about the profiled creature and a simple math problem facing a full-color, full-page photo. The amount of reader interaction varies. In Apes, there are addition problems but only one has to be answered; in Bears, every math problem requires a solution (answers are in the back); in Seals, there are subtraction examples that are solved for children. The facts about the animals are appropriate, although minimal, and may leave most children wanting more.[Page 44]. (c) Copyright 2011.
