Barbara Barbieri McGrath Author Barbara has visited schools in over 25 states giving interactive presentations to teachers and students and encouraging children to read and write.
Barbara wanted to combine her interest in writing with her desire to make learning fun. This, and her experience with children, inspired her to write her first book, The M&M'S® Brand Counting Book, which has over a million copies in print. She has also written several other books, including More M&M's® Brand Math, The Cheerios Counting Book(Scholastic), and The Baseball Counting Book.
She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and their two children.From Publishers Weekly:
This insignificant addition to the crowded shelves of counting books encourages children to use M&M candies--in specific color configurations--to practice counting from one to 12, and then to form the various sets of 12 (six groups of two; three groups of four, etc.) as well as the shapes of a square, circle and triangle. From its opening lines ("Pour out the candies. Get ready, get set. / This counting book is the tastiest yet!"), the rhymed text is rather banal, and the art--which consists entirely of depictions of these small round candies--is limited and monotonous. Finally, the book ends with a lesson in subtraction, in which youngsters are encouraged to eat the pieces, color by color, until none remains. Perhaps the sugar will give them a kick; unfortunately, this slim book doesn't offer much food for thought. Ages 3-8.
