Praise for Albert Doubles the Fun:
“First graders will love this book as they memorize their addition doubles. The story is clever and the illustrations are bright and colorful. The dunking booth, pie eating contest, and ferris wheel will make this a most enjoyable read for children. Recommended.”—Ann Valdez, Rio Vista Independent School District, Association of Region XI Librarians, Fort Worth, TX
“This new entry in the Mouse Math series sends Albert to the fair, where there are plenty of opportunities to double up. An enabling alternative to or companion for Stuart Murphy’s Double the Ducks in the venerable MathStart series.”—Kirkus
“Perfect for first grade. The illustrations provide a rich, colorful context. Such vocabulary as double and twice are given meaning through this sweet tale of friendship.”—Teaching Children Mathematics, Journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
“This visually appealing series will be a hit with young readers. Colorful, humorous illustrations tie the text to the topic. Each volume … will help readers see how math concepts are all around us in our daily lives. An excellent series for math enrichment … makes the math concepts fun and interesting.” —School Library Connection for Albert Doubles the Fun, Albert Helps Out, Bravo, Albert!, and Where’s Albert?
“Highly recommended. Imaginatively illustrated by Deborah Melmon.”—Children’s Bookwatch
