Our mission: to make math a fun part of kids' everyday lives. We all know it's wonderful to read bedtime stories to kids, but what about doing math? Many generations of Americans are uncomfortable with math and numbers, and too often we hear the phrase, "I'm just not good at math!" For decades, this attitude has trickled down from parents to their kids, and we now have a culture that finds math dry, intimidating, and just not cool. "Bedtime Math" wants to change all that. Inside this book, families will find fun, mischief-making math problems to tackle math that isn't just kid-friendly, but actually kid-appealing. With over 100 math riddles on topics from jalapenos and submarines to roller coasters and flamingos, this book bursts with math that looks nothing like school. And with three different levels of challenge (wee ones, little kids, and big kids), there's something for everyone. We can make numbers fun, and change the world, one "Bedtime Math "puzzle at a time."show more
