A noteworthy review of Simply Math from School Library Journal on December 1, 2013
In the first book, children are introduced to the basic concepts of counting by ones, fives, and tens, and of place values. Groups of children use familiar objects such as rocks, buttons, and jelly beans to count. In the second title, youngsters are introduced to fractions through different objects, including pizza, candy bars, and traffic lights. Frequent questions are posed and answered within the text. The narratives are lively, and the explanations are clear. The colorful layout features large, easy-to-read type and photographs on every spread. The images help to illuminate the concepts discussed and boxes highlight additional information. Each book concludes with a short list of key words (without definitions) facing an index that duplicates these words. Appropriate additions for the earliest readers in schools or public libraries.
