Reviews about Missing Mittens (MathStart 1) by G. Brian Karas,Stuart J. Murphy

Great book for teaching math concepts.
I want my toddler to be well educated. "Missing Mittens" is a fun story that introduces him to math; and has become one of his favorite books.
I love this book and the whole math series.
Lots of fun
This book is great for beginning math. My 2 year old grandson loves to read it with me.
My grandchildren loved this book. Did a great job of presenting even and odd.
By far, the illustrations are the best part of this book. The wonderful depictions of Farmer Bill, his farm and animals give the book much more depth than the forced rhymes. And frankly, they also do a better job of getting across the concepts of odd and even.
My preschool boys greatly enjoy the twist at the end of the book, where there's a glimpse of the next item that will be found to be missing. The fact that the found mittens are drawn as having parts missing pleases them also. It provides a great topic for discussion.
The follow-up suggestions are rather disappointing and unimaginative. The book certainly isn't helped by their inclusion.
I'd rate this as an average children's book. The basic story is quite cute, but the illustrations make the book.
