KIRKUS REVIEW

omino Addition ($14.95, $15.88 PLB, $6.95 paper; March 1996; 32 pp.; 0-88106-878-0, PLB 0-88106-879-9, paper 0-88106-877-2): A math game and counting book that takes advantage of the intuitive understanding of addition that children gain from a set of dominoes. Long's first book starts with a blank black domino perched next to an equation, 0 + 0 = 0; on the opposite page are dominoes laid out in a circle, or zero. Each spread, with vibrant backgrounds to set off the black dominoes, follows that format; the surprise is in the symmetry of combinations that emerges--a glimpse of the wonder of numbers in a well-designed book. (Picture book/nonfiction. 3-8)
