bedtime math

“We want kids to feel about math the way they feel about dessert after dinner.” -- a quote from author Laura Overdeck about Bedtime Math. This is the third book in the brilliant series written by her and illustrated by Jim Paillot: Bedtime Math: The Truth Comes Out.  There are a hundred math problems that accompany different intriguing topics that kids are curious about (e.g., Have carrots always been orange?)—with three different challenge levels for each math problem—wee ones, little kids and big kids, plus a bonus question. We’ve been going through the first book with Avery and she has been seriously enjoying it!  This series not only makes math fun, but practical, since kids are able to see how math is used in real life.  This is one of the best gifts we can give our children—showing them how their education plays a big part in them understanding the world. Happy reading and solving math problems!
