Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 3-6. The distinction achieved by Pluckrose and Fairclough in previous collaborations continues in these additions to the Knowabout series. Concepts already covered in this series are counting, numbers, time, and weight [BKL My 1 88]. As the author notes in the introduction, mathematical concepts have been developed to explain particular qualities (capacity and length) as well as relationships and comparisons (patterns and sorting). Because these are abstract, the use of familiar objects from nature, housewares, clothing, toys, and food makes the concepts more tangible and comprehensible. The crisply composed photos of familiar objects, the respectfully direct text, and the vibrancy of this dual effort add up to an excitingly interactive presentation. The questions asked will easily generate discussion. Pattern can also be used for art classes. These examples of quality bookmaking, in dealing effectively with abstract concepts, could also be very helpful to English-as-a-second-language instructors. PW."
