K-Gr 3‘This series of introductory math books presents various concepts on different levels. The Best Vacation Ever shows how a family decides where to go on vacation (problem solving); Divide and Ride shows how 11 children are able to sort themselves into smaller groups in order to go on different rides at a carnival. In Every Buddy, a young girl counts her friends and her pets. All books are simply written but very clear, and concepts are explained in a number of ways. The cartoon illustrations are of average quality and capture the many characters' diverse activities. Suggestions are presented at the end for related activities, such as planning a picnic, dividing snacks, and measuring to make cookies. An entertaining approach to progressive levels of math concepts.‘Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
