Each letter in the book introduces a very complicated item. For example:
“V is for Vertex. A vertex is a point where lines meet to make a corner. The plural of vertex is vertices. For example, a triangle has three vertices and a square has four vertices.”
Maybe it’s intended to help a baby fall asleep?
I don’t think reading this is going to hold the attention of many children. It’s aimed at the wrong ages, but the right ages (maybe six to nine?) already know their alphabet, so the “ABC” concept wouldn’t be appropriate. Noble goals, perhaps, but I don’t see anyone really enjoying or even learning from this book.
PLOT: No plot. On each set of pages, on the left page is a letter with simple text such as “K is for kilogram”. On the right page, the concept is explained in greater detail.
TEXT: Simple on the left, more complex on the right.
ARTWORK: Simple and childlike. Basic.
- Interesting way to present the alphabet, focusing on mathematics.
- Lots of boys. Lots of girls. Lots of skin tones. One child in a wheelchair.
- If this is a baby book, perhaps the pages should not be made of paper.
- If this is a book for older children, perhaps it should not have the word “baby” on it, which would be off putting.
- One token child in a wheelchair is an inadequate representation of disability.
- Some of the concepts are ridiculously complex for this age group. “X is for X-axis.”
BEST READ BY: You to your youngster until they can read it themselves.
BOTTOM LINE: Overall, I'm not really a fan. It seems like the left side of the page is geared to very young children and the right side of the page is geared towards older children. You can either look at this as a book that children will return to over time or consider that a book that targets two different age groups might appeal to neither.
As someone who once suffered from math-phobia, I think anything that presents math as fun is a step in the right direction and I applaud the authors for doing that with this book.
This book is geared toward learning new vocabulary words, but those that are related to math. "B," for instance, is for "bisect." It's not a term that a little one would come into contact with otherwise, but it is an easy one to incorporate on a daily basis after learning it in the book - i.e. you can bisect an apple by cutting it in half.
The book's design is very kid-friendly. The letters are big and bold, and the pages and illustrations are bright and colorful. Perfect for little ones.
The only downside is that the pages feel like they’re made of a cheap type of paper, and experience tells me that they will not hold up well to little hands. I would have given 5 stars if the paper was a bit sturdier.
I got this for an almost 2-year-old niece who has a large vocabulary, is speaking complete sentences, and is "reading" books - reading as in reciting what she's memorized what has been read to her on each page. Her mother was a child math whiz, so I'm quite sure both will enjoy this book.
