Domino Addition

Lynette Long, Author Charlesbridge Publishing $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-88106-878-8
That unassuming icon, the domino tile, helps youngsters add numbers from zero to 10 in this solid, no-nonsense offering. The clear approach also makes it useful for children just learning to count. Dominoes seem somehow so obvious for the purpose, owing primarily to the simplicity of newcomer Long's presentation. Large flat dominoes lie against solid bold backgrounds on every page; the text directs the reader to ""add the number of spots on the top half of this domino to the number of spots on the bottom half."" Facing pages show several dominoes arranged in the shape of a number, while the text asks the reader to find the domino with the matching number of dots (answers appear at the bottom of the next page). This sound title has a natural place in the classroom, too. Ages 3-8. (Mar.)
