9780060001292: Earth Day--Hooray! (MathStart 3)

Earth Day is on the way, and Ryan, Luke, and Carly have a plan. If they manage to collect and recycle 5,000 aluminum cans, they can make enough money to buy some beautiful flowers for nearby Gilroy Park.

CAN they do it?

Counting the cans gives Ryan, Luke, and Carly -- along with readers -- a lesson in place value. And facts about recycling throughout the story will help readers understand how important it is to take care of the earth.

About the Author:

Stuart J. Murphy is a visual learning specialist. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, he has a strong background in design and art direction. He also has extensive experience in the world of educational publishing. Drawing on all these talents, Stuart J. Murphy brings a unique perspective to the MathStart series. In MathStart books, pictures do more than tell stories; they teach math.

Stuart J. Murphy and his wife, Nancy, live in Boston.

From Booklist:

Gr. 1-3. In this latest addition to Murphy's growing MathStart series, the Maple Street School's Save the Planet Club decides to clean up Gilroy Park and plant some flowers to celebrate Earth Day. To raise the necessary funds to purchase plants, they hold an aluminum-can drive, with a goal of collecting 5,000 cans. Keeping track of the daily totals is somewhat of a challenge until the kids begin to sort--using bags of 10, 100, and so forth--allowing Murphy to explain the concept and use of place value. Andriani's cheerful illustrations fairly teem with information about recycling and add humor and human interest to the story. Appended notes suggest extension activities for parents or teachers and also point children to related books. Funny anytime, this will also be a good choice for jazzing up a routine math lesson or as a springboard for Earth Day activities. Kay Weisman
