PreSchool-Grade 2. This math book falls short of the mark. The text, which describes brown bears and polar bears engaged in various activities, has a distracting, uneven rhythm due to its constant shift between rhyme and prose. Although some of the rules for odd and even are pointed out (e.g., "Two, four, six, eight, ten?even numbers"), many questions go unanswered, such as "Count the bikes./Count the wheels./Which number is odd?/Which is even?" The illustrations serve the text in simple demonstrations of even and odd (e.g., four polar bears play on a giant number "4"; five brown bears paint on an oversized numeral "5"). However, the pictures do little to illuminate readers' understanding of the tougher concepts such as "Odd plus even?always odd!" These are pictured merely as equations the bears write on a chalkboard (e.g., 5+4=9). Stick with Stuart Murphy and G. Brian Karas's Give Me Half! (HarperCollins, 1996), Stuart Murphy and Lois Ehlert's A Pair of Socks (HarperCollins, 1996), and Pat Hutchins's The Doorbell Rang (Greenwillow, 1986) and wait for a better book that focuses on odd and even.?Gale W.
