PreSchool-Grade 2-Each of these books focuses on a simple math concept: matching, time lines, or multiplication. In the first title, the rhymed narrative tells of a sock's search through the house for its mate. When the two are reunited and a torn heel mended, the pair is whole and wearable. A double-page spread allows children to match pairs of socks. In Get Up and Go, the amount of time spent by a girl in various tasks is visually represented; here, the explanation is not as clearly expressed. Told in rhyme by her dog, the story is interspersed with line graphs that display the number of minutes used for each activity. In Kangaroo, the main character hunts for a playmate and finds that everyone is busy. All of their activities are listed and then multiplied by one through four. Kangaroo soon discovers that his friends are preparing a birthday party that culminates with all of their endeavors adding up to 100. Bright hues of acrylic paint and collage are used in the cartoon illustrations. All of these titles end with helpful hints about using the books to teach additional concepts and are best used in a one-on-one setting.
