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
100 Ways to Celebrate 100 Days!
(by Bruce Goldstone, Holt $16.99 Score:)

Schools often celebrate the 100th day of school with some sort of counting games. Here is a book full of photographs with 100 different ways to celebrate the big day. This is probably of most interest to early grade teachers, but for the math minded, it's an entertaining book. It's also an interesting book to look at in terms of how many ways one can show 100 objects and see how easy it is to count them by tens or fives or twos. As a concept book it may need some adult adding strategies.
