Synopsis

Beep Beep, Vroom Vroom! by Stuart J. Murphy

The yellow cars beep! The red cars vroom! As Molly plays with her big brother's toy cars, readers will see and recognize patterns, an essential first step in learning to reason from the specific to the general. But can Molly put the cars back in the right order before her brother returns?

Reviews

Like all Murphy's MathStart titles, this lively picture book uses a story from a child's daily world to teach a basic math skill. Here the math is pattern recognition... At the back are practical suggestions for adults and kids to find patterns with pebbles, buttons, coins, and kitchen utensils. Demarest's clear, simple pastel pictures express the fun of playing with cars as the vrooming action reveals the patterns in everyday things.ALA Booklist
