9780060531676: More or Less (MathStart 2)

Is your age more than 5?
Is it less than 10?

Eddie's got to guess. And he doesn't want to be wrong!

Eddie has a booth at the school fair, guessing people's ages. He hasn't guessed wrong yet, but if he does, he gets dunked. Can Eddie keep guessing right -- and keep from getting wet?

Comparing whole numbers and understanding what's more and what's less are a big part of Eddie's strategy, and an important math skill for young readers to learn.

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.



David Wenzel has illustrated Middle Earth:The World of Tolkien Illustrated, The Kingdom of the Dwarfs, and created the Hidden Kingdom line of greeting cards. He lives in Durham, CT.

From Booklist:

Gr. 1-3. The concept of comparing numbers gets Murphy's signature MathStart treatment--by turns amusing and teaching. In this story, Eddie works the "guess the age" booth at the fair. Blindfolded, he listens to a contestant's voice, and if he guesses a person's age "after three questions or less," he wins. The contestant gets a prize if Eddie has to ask four or more questions. If Eddie hasn't guessed after six tries, he gets dunked in a pool. The way Eddie progresses (he arrives at his answers by narrowing his guess to a number more than or less than another number) leads children into the world of logical, educated guesses. A subplot about a girl trying to win a prize cleverly ties into the main story. Youngsters who need to understand the math concept in more depth will find several activities at the conclusion of the book. These are meant to be done with help from adults, to whom the back matter is directed. Sprightly watercolor artwork makes math look like fun. Ilene Cooper
