Bedtime Math: This Time It's Personal

Laura Overdeck; illustated by Jim Paillot

"We want kids to feel about math the way they feel about dessert after dinner." —Laura Overdeck, Time magazine

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.

This time, Bedtime Math is getting personal and talking all about Y.O.U. 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 missing socks and glitter to your favorite wild pet and how fast you can run, kids will find math isn’t just fun, it can be found in their everyday lives. And with three different levels of challenge (Wee ones, Little kids, and Big kids), plus a brand-new Bonus question, there’s something for everyone. We can make numbers fun, and change the world, one Bedtime Math puzzle at a time.
