Matthias, Margaret; Thiessen, Diane
This document reviews approximately 200 children's books in mathematics for the early grades. The 1975 and 1976 editions of "Children's Books in Print" were used to generate the book list, and all but approximately 20 of the titles listed were located for this review. Each review presented describes content and accuracy, illustrations and their appropriateness, the author's writing style, and whether reader activities are included. Notations indicate whether single or multiple concepts are developed. The books are classified under: Counting, Geometry, Measurement, Number Concepts, Time, and Miscellaneous. Further, each work is designated as either highly recommended, recommended, acceptable, or not recommended. The document concludes with an author-title index. (MP)
