doesn't want to go to his family reunion so he asks if he can stay home
and complete his graphing homework. Gary's mom suggests he bring it
along, and once there, Gary gets really into the project and use data
family members to make pie, bar, and line graphs.
For its straightforward presentation and fun premise, this is one of our favorite books for teaching graphs. If you're teaching graphing, you cannot go wrong with this selection.
Booklist said "the clarity of the graphs makes the math
lesson clear." Your students will likely
WANT to do graphs after a
read aloud. The only downside we see with using this
book in teaching graphs is its size. It's a reader, not a picture book,
so it's small for a read aloud.
