Gr. 1^-3. Riddles and easy readers make an excellent team, because no one has greater appreciation for a funny riddle than the six-or seven-year-old child. Old favorites are here: "Which weighs more--a pound of lead or a pound of feathers?" Ziefert also includes some that may even get a chuckle from a grown-up: "If there were 9 cats in a boat and 1 jumped out, how many would be left? None. They're copycats!" The illustrations are comical if rather muddy; it's the brief text and enticing subject that make this a great choice for balky readers who have a hard time finishing a book. Susan Dove LempkeFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4?Ziefert provides a combination of logic, word play, and humor to introduce basic concepts. Short, easy-to-read sentences are accompanied by visual clues in the form of colorful cartoons. The funny riddles are just right for reading aloud or for sharing with a friend. Teachers might find them useful as a math lesson warm-up, or for filling in "wait time" between activities. Whole language classrooms will find this series entry a good way to integrate math and reading.?Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
