This is a great book for kids doing graph units in 1st or 2nd grade. My 1st grader was out of school for over a week and his teacher sent home a bunch of stuff from their unit on graphing. This book was recommended (under the old title) and of course all copies were out of the local library. I ordered the Kindle version so I could read it with him before we started the worksheets the teacher had provided. The minute we finished he wanted to create his own Pie graph (sure, pick the format that requires percentages that I have to figure out!!). And no, my kid is not a big lover of math, for some reason this book just struck a chord.
This is an early reader that sneaks in some graphing to introduce the math concept -- you see different types of graphs and how data is organized. The story is cute -- a kid goes to a family reunion and expects to be bored, but ends up making graphs about all the relatives. It does exactly what it says it's going to do. Readable and enjoyable.
This is a fun book -- my 5- and 7-year olds love it. It does a great job of telling an engaging story while teaching about graphs and promoting math as fun. But the one of the bar charts is wrong -- I guess the editors of this series could use some math help themselves.
As a teacher, I really like using books in the math classroom to help with build math vocabulary understanding. This was recommended for my math library, and I am glad that I got this book about graphs for my students. They are learning about graphs in Science and Math.
