ea. vol: photogs. by Chris Fairclough. unpaged. (Knowabout Series). Watts. 1988. PLB $9.90. PreSchool-Grade 2 This series is intended to draw youngsters and adults into conversation directed toward understanding mathematically-related concepts. Vibrantly colored photographs of familiar objects combine with informative text and related questions to encourage active shared participation. Concepts such as balance, comparative amounts, and relative time are communicated clearly. Fairclough's photography is integral to the success of the series. The counting book is not unique in that other beginning books on counting also depend on child-adult interaction. For example, Ten What? (Scribners, 1974) by Russell Hoban and Anno's Counting Book (Crowell, 1977) could lead to shared activities; both offer opportunities for adults to guide youngsters toward understanding of the concepts. However, the other three books are unique in their approach. They deal with abstract concepts, so there is an obvious need for adult guidance. In all four books, the blend of text, leading questions, and photography results in worthwhile additions to collections for this targeted young audience.
