Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. In this latest addition to Murphy's growing MathStart series, the Maple Street School's Save the Planet Club decides to clean up Gilroy Park and plant some flowers to celebrate Earth Day. To raise the necessary funds to purchase plants, they hold an aluminum-can drive, with a goal of collecting 5,000 cans. Keeping track of the daily totals is somewhat of a challenge until the kids begin to sort--using bags of 10, 100, and so forth--allowing Murphy to explain the concept and use of place value. Andriani's cheerful illustrations fairly teem with information about recycling and add humor and human interest to the story. Appended notes suggest extension activities for parents or teachers and also point children to related books. Funny anytime, this will also be a good choice for jazzing up a routine math lesson or as a springboard for Earth Day activities. Kay Weisman

By Lynn Ellingwood VINE VOICE on March 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
Earth Day - Hooray! is a book which combines the social studies topic of Earth Day and recycling with math ideas and place value. Kids enjoy the book as if it were a puzzle and the topic can be included in many topics, not just math. This is important because I teach ESOL and math isn't always considered a topic I am supposed to teach. The book allows me to cover social studies and language concepts and include math tips also.

I got this book for my kindergarten class. It is an amazing book with an amazing idea that any grade can do within their classroom. Next year, I will read the book a few weeks before Earth Day so we can do the project ahead of time and collect our data. Great Buy!

My kids LOVE this book even though they are younger than the recommended age. Easy to follow story goes well with the math. Teaches how even kids can help clean up the earth. The kids ask for it to be read over and over again!

Great book for more than math! Kids face challenges and overcome them, achieve goals, and most of all, care about their environment. Good book.
