Dealing with Addition by Lynette Long

This book gives a clear, illustrated introduction to the basic mechanics of a deck of cards-how to identify suits and numbers and different ways to sort cards, by color, number, or suit. It then goes on to point out how addition problems can be created with the use of cards. A separate page is dedicated to each number, one through ten. Using a displayed group of cards, the reader is asked to find ways to combine these cards to add up to the featured number. It takes just the turn of the page to find the answers. Even though this exercise is initially exciting, the repetition of the experience gets a bit redundant, at least in book form.

Children just learning math may be enthralled by the process described but it's questionable as to how often they'd refer to the book once the concept is grasped. One plus to the book is that it's visually attractive. Appropriate colors combine to create a dynamic presentation with the white card against an alternating background of black or red. The look is sharp and snappy. Another plus is the card game described at the end that uses the adding strategies featured in the book. I played this game with my seven year old who found it both challenging and fun.
