Editorial Reviews

“The simple, concrete mapping of the sequence of how children develop math concepts and skills makes learning, understanding, and implementing the ideas an easy task. The visuals to help explain the concepts are essential as well.”   -Connie Casha, Tennessee Department of Education     "[This book is] a remarkable addition to my Science and Math for Young Children course. At the end of the course, many students shared how much [it] helped them overcome their anxieties about creating math activities for young children that go beyond counting. My students feel much more confident about using new and appropriate language while facilitating meaningful math activities with children."    -Nena Bush, Malcolm X College, Chicago
