Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-5. These two large-format paperbacks offer explanations and activities for children who don't understand or haven't mastered multiplication and division. By taking different approaches to explain the same concepts, Long increases the probability that something will click in the student's mind. Some chapters, such as the one on multiplying by one, are excellent for building solid understanding. Others, such as the chapter on dividing by erasing zeroes, are disappointing in this regard. The cheerful ink drawings help make the books more inviting. Overall, these will be useful supplemental resources for students who need some help with the fundamental skills of multiplication and division. --Carolyn Phelan
