If your children are already familiar with Math Appeal, please note that the exercizes in this book are significantly easier that the exercizes in that book. Most of the grouping in this book is done by 5's or 10's, rather than the 7's and 11's that are often used in Math Appeal. This makes it easier for younger kids to count by groups, rather than just straight counting.
The reason I have given this book 4 stars rather than 5 is that after going through the book twice or three times and, more importantly, solving the problems, the book no longer held my child's interest. It has been sitting on the shelf untouched for months.
I had hoped this would be a great book to add to my classroom--a great connection between literacy and mathematics.
I was ultimately disappointed in the quality of both the mathematics and the language used. It didn't inspire explorations into mathematics or into the language of riddles.
I guess I was just hoping for more.
