Math in a positive, fun way!
Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2018
My daughter is an excellent reader and does well above her grade level. Math is something that she struggles with, even at such a young age. She is intimidated by it easily and just shuts down at the sight of any math problem, whether she can solve it or not. After being a long time fan of McKellar I discovered she was an established author of children's books, specifically math related ones. I got the idea that my daughter would be encouraged by a woman that is a mathematician. She read the book and absolutely loved it. She was intrigued by the story and message, also the beautifully drawn pictures. The story flows well and is catchy, it definitely keeps her attention. My daughter also realized that there was subtraction happening, I feared she would lose interest then but she only become fascinated and excited about it. It brought my heart joy to hear her excitement. Later she decided to read the story to her baby doll. I highly recommend this book even for children that don't read yet. Their parents can read it to them, it introduces math in a positive and fun way. I'll most certainly buy more books by McKellar.
