Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3. This series of introductory math books presents various concepts on different levels. The Best Vacation Ever shows how a family decides where to go on vacation (problem solving); Divide and Ride shows how 11 children are able to sort themselves into smaller groups in order to go on different rides at a carnival. In Every Buddy, a young girl counts her friends and her pets. All books are simply written but very clear, and concepts are explained in a number of ways. The cartoon illustrations are of average quality and capture the many characters' diverse activities. Suggestions are presented at the end for related activities, such as planning a picnic, dividing snacks, and measuring to make cookies. An entertaining approach to progressive levels of math concepts.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY

"Divide and Ride" is a great way to introduce your children/students to division. It has fabulous illustrations and written in a kid-friendly manner. Students can relate to the idea of going to an amusement park and/or carnival and they can start to see patterns as the book continues.

I purchased this book because of the reviews...I expected a fun book about using math and it is fun. My child had me read it a few times just because he likes roller coasters and making friends. This book goes over simple division as well as multiplication and how we use math daily to solve problems. Even if you read it just for fun...

I like to incorporate reading into math activities and lessons and this is a simple and fun book to use to introduce or utilize math talk in a math lesson. The graphics are bright and colorful and it will keep students interest.

It's simple, sweet, and a fun conversation about real-life situations that require math. As an introduction to division, it is a fun activity in which all students can participate, too! It's a must have on my library shelf.
