Reviews for Subtracting with Seals

Library Media Connection Reviews 2012 May/June
This is a series that mixes simple math concepts with brief facts about animals. Although uneven in execution, this will still be a high interest set with clear colorful photographs and interesting animals. In some of the titles, questions are posed and the pictures provide clues. All titles have a glossary, a "for more information" page with books and websites, and where necessary, an answer key page. This series will provide supplemental information to these math units through a fun and entertaining look at animals. Table of Contents. Index.

School Library Journal Reviews 2011 November

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.
