2012 Award
Help Me Learn Subtraction
(by Jean Marzollo/ illus. Chad Phillips, Holiday House $15.95 Score:)

Newest in an excellent series that introduces beginners to the concept of subtraction. Using rhymes that give auditory cues and photographs for visual clues, the symbols of math equations become playful and concrete. For young children the concrete objects pictured add an understanding of the number symbols. Eventually children will not need the images, but for young children, these images are already one step beyond real objects. You can further reinforce the concepts of subtracting with crackers or cheerios to represent the same equations on the pages. Frankly, M&Ms and kisses were always my favorite way to teach subtraction. But Jean Marzollo's rhymes add a dash of humor that is always welcome when dealing with numbers! They say 3-7, we say more like 5-7.

2010 Award
Teddy Bear Counting
(by Barbara B. McGrath/ illus. by Tim Nihoff, Charlesbridge $16.95 Score:)

Both a color concept and counting book, this starts off easy and gets more complex as it moves along. After counting the bears from 1-2, they mix it up with sets of two, three and more. There are some equations written out that are likely to go over the heads of young students. McGrath finishes her book with the typical device of reducing the crowd as the story comes to a close. 4 & up.
