Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8?Several activities that use brief puzzle or "mystery" stories are proposed to help children master the concept of graphs. These problems are lucid, and the above-average illustrations, consisting of a variety of graphs as well as color photos, are crisp and clear. If all else fails, the solutions are at the back of the book. The environmental activities, such as observing birds or graphing the family recycling, are especially helpful. Bar, line, and circle graphs are all included. This volume should be warmly received and as useful as Markle's earlier activity books. Though most helpful in an educational setting, the book will also appeal to families who enjoy learning together.?Jody McCoy, Lakehill Preparatory School, Dallas, TX

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-6. It's unfortunate that most kids don't browse the math section for "fun" reading because Markle's book on graphs is as entertaining as it is informative. Markle describes four types of graphs, explaining why each kind is used and how to choose the right type to display information most effectively. This is a hands-on book: readers can solve mysteries using graphs, conduct surveys, perform experiments, and graph their results. As always, Markle writes in a lively style that immediately involves the reader, and her explanations are so well written that even children who avoid math will easily understand them. The attractive design of the book is also appealing, with full-color illustrations on every page and clearly labeled charts and diagrams. Be sure to suggest this to math teachers and include it in nonfiction booktalks. Chris Sherman

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
