Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Long uses illustrations of dominoes on colored double-page spreads to introduce the principles of addition. Each opening is the same: "Add the number of spots on the top half of each domino to the number of spots on the bottom half of each domino." This pattern follows from 0 through 12, with the appropriate numbers on the featured pieces. Although there's not much in the way of narrative explanation, the concept is presented clearly. The lack of variance in the text becomes a little monotonous, however-after one sitting, readers won't have to use the book anymore-they'll be able to quote it all from memory. Also, the only domino sets mentioned are those with double sixes-but double nines and twelves are also readily available. If you need a very simple book on basic addition, this one is serviceable.

From Kirkus Reviews

omino Addition ($14.95, $15.88 PLB, $6.95 paper; March 1996; 32 pp.; 0-88106-878-0, PLB 0-88106-879-9, paper 0-88106-877-2): A math game and counting book that takes advantage of the intuitive understanding of addition that children gain from a set of dominoes. Long's first book starts with a blank black domino perched next to an equation, 0 + 0 = 0; on the opposite page are dominoes laid out in a circle, or zero. Each spread, with vibrant backgrounds to set off the black dominoes, follows that format; the surprise is in the symmetry of combinations that emerges--a glimpse of the wonder of numbers in a well-designed book.

I have just borrowed this book from a library and my four year old loves it. I had no idea, till today, that he can actually understand that 2+2=4 and that also 3+1=4. But today everything seemed so easy and so fun. We have seen quite a few "counting" books and this is so far the best of them. Another one I can reccomend is "My first number book" by Marie Heinst

Using dominoes is a great tool for teaching young children how to add. Perfect for 4-5 year olds....this book was too basic for my first grader. The only problem is you're limited to combinations up to 6. For example, you are not able to make 10 using 7 plus 3. All combinations need to be learned (obviously!) and this cannot be done with this method. It's still a fun and interesting way for young children to learn the basics.
