About the Author:

Stuart J. Murphy is a visual learning specialist. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, he has a strong background in design and art direction. He also has extensive experience in the world of educational publishing. Drawing on all these talents, Stuart J. Murphy brings a unique perspective to the MathStart series. In MathStart books, pictures do more than tell stories; they teach math.

Stuart J. Murphy and his wife, Nancy, live in Boston.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-In Time, a simple text and colorful cartoon artwork show a child as he goes through a typical day, with activities listed for each hour. Times are presented on both a digital and round-faced clock. Unfortunately, the digital numbers are in yellow on a purple background, making them hard to read. Also, although the narrative mentions "time to learn" or "quiet time," the exact hour (e.g., five o'clock) is never written out in the text. Claire Llewellyn's My First Book of Time (DK, 1992) and Eve Merriam's Train Leaves the Station (Holt, 1994) are better choices on this topic. More or Less uses a carnival game to demonstrate comparing numbers. During a school picnic, Eddie, a math whiz, guesses people's ages by asking them if they are older or younger than a certain number. If it takes him more than six questions, he gets dunked. He is fairly successful until the principal steps up. This engaging tale, illustrated with lighthearted watercolors, will inspire children to re-create Eddie's game and might lead to a new interest in math. In the third book, Polly has an e-mail pen pal in Montreal. As Ally uses metrics to discuss height, weight, and distances, Polly learns what they mean. No comparisons to English measurements are made but the metric measurements are likened to common objects that kids will recognize. This title features colorful but simplistic computer-generated cartoons.-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI
