Earth Day--Hooray! (Mathstart)

Earth Day--Hooray! (Mathstart) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Funny anytime, this will also be a good choice for jazzing up a routine math lesson or as a springboard for Earth Day activities." Booklist

Review:

"The stories about a club that recycles cans, birds searching for the right-size home, students doing 'cool' things for the first hundred days of school make the concepts palatable, while the cartoony color art adds energy." Hornbook Guide to Children

Review:

"The cartoon-style illustrations provide a touch of levity to the math topic." Children's Literature

Review:

"Excellent activity suggestions follow the text, allowing parents and children to spend time together while learning." Kirkus Reviews
