Gr. 1-3. The latest addition to the Math Start series presents the concept of combinations in a story about a group of children who host an ice-cream booth at their school picnic. With two flavors of ice cream, two sauces, and two choices of toppings, the children are surprised that eight different sundaes are available. But when Lauren spills the sprinkles, only four sundae possibilities remain. Then James spills the caramel sauce, and only two sundae choices are left. Murphy easily folds the math concepts into a lively story that will capture young readers, and Jabar reinforces the lesson with colorful, whimsical drawings of delectable ice-cream scoops. The book closes with follow-up activities that will be useful for parents and teachers who want to encourage children to create similar stories using this concept. Helen Rosenberg

Winnie's illustrations on the blackboard and the story will stimulate most young children's mind, and it will teach then a little bit of math in a fun way through books instead of at school. So this educates children to learn how to read and understand math. There is only one word that young children might not understand, and that word is stupendous. So this story will be easy to read even for children who struggle reading or just don't read that often. Because of the great illustrations and interesting story, I give this story a 4 out of 5.
