Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lively combinations of items add up to 11 in what PW called "a counting book with an innovative twist." Ages 2-6.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Kirkus Reviews

From the late poet, a whimsical exploration of enumeration. On each colorful spread, like and dissimilar--but somehow related--objects total 11: ``Out of the magician's hat: four banners, five rabbits, a pitcher of water, and a bouquet of flowers''; or, ``Go past four corners and two traffic lights, then past the house with two chimneys and the garage with two cars and a bicycle. Now look, you're at Eleventh Street''; and, more obscurely since the first item is made known only by its absence, ``Six bites, a core, a stem, and three apple seeds.'' Karlin's cheerful collages feature light, bright colors and bold designs incorporating a clean, weighty sans-serif type. An attractive book that invites the logical investigation of more concepts than most counting books. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

What a neat way to illustrate the concept of basic addition! Our kindergarten teacher read this book to the class and it provided an example to the children that adding numbers together can be done in a variety of ways: from simple to higher level thinking.

I find 12 Ways to Get to 11 to be a very useful tool for the classroom. Every two pages focuses on a different way to get to the number eleven. The pictures correspond directly to what is being said. This is a good springboard for more discussion and work for different combinations of numbers. Teachers can take advantage of the format in which each combination is presented and have their students come up with their own "number stories." This book provides a good alternative way of thinking about addition.

Well done Ms. Merriam!

I want to come back after I've had some time to build lessons from this one, but I can tell you that this is definitely a book that you will use and reuse—I'll come back when I have some ideas, but chock full of examples to explore and discuss as mathematicians and scholars!

This book really made my students listen. As they were listening to it, you could almost see their minds doing the math in their heads. Good for them to see that there are so many ways to get to 11.

My 2-1/2-year-old loves this book. She loves to count the objects and always calls out "eleven!" with great enthusiasm.
