PreSchool-Grade 1?A parade of bugs introduces size relationships in this playful approach to beginning math concepts. Comparisons
of big (bigger, biggest) small (smaller, smallest), and long and short are presented by an assortment of cheery insects marching through a colorful environment of flowers and grass. Some of the insects, such as a ladybug, are easily identifiable, while others are more fanciful. A spacious format with large print and brief text gives Keller's expressive creatures lots of space to enliven the concepts. A double-page section of suggested activities for adults to share with children is included. Early childhood teachers and parents will all find this a useful book, and youngsters will be attracted to the lively illustrations. A good choice to pair with Bruce McMillan's Super, Super, Superwords (Lothrop, 1989).?Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
