Review:

"Makes an interesting and thought-provoking contribution to the field of mathematics instruction. Looking at math and literacy as closely aligned language structures creates a need to rethink the strategies used for math instruction." (Catherine Hernandez, Second-Grade Teacher 2006-12-01)

"It′s about time! Teaching literacy has been researched, written about, and rewritten so that it can be taught using the most effective methods for optimal learning. Little of this has transpired for mathematics. This book is very unique in its contribution and premise." (Deborah Gordon, Third-Grade Teacher 2006-12-01)

"Elementary-level teachers and college-level education collections will find a blend of real-world teaching examples with strategies and instructional approach designed to illustrate and build upon fundamental math concepts, helping students not only learn math but the logic behind it." (California Bookwatch, October 2007 2007-11-07)

"Minton makes fascinating connections between reading and math. Strategies such as making connections, asking questions, determining importance, and inferring aid in decoding and comprehending both text and numbers." (Curriculum Connections, Spring 2008 2008-08-07)
