I’m so excited to be back at providing book recommendations and this series is so exciting to share!
We recently picked up the ‘Bedtime Math’ book series from our local library. We checked out three of the books in a series of four books: Bedtime Math: A Fun Excuse to Stay Up Late, Bedtime Math: This Time It’s Personal, and Bedtime Math: The Truth Comes Out.
These books are creatively written by Laura Overdeck. In each of the three books pages start with a wacky, fun, fact filled story about a particular topic. Then it is followed by 3-4 math questions related to the topic, that increase in difficulty – ‘Wee ones’, ‘Little Kids’, ‘Big Kids’ and sometimes ‘Bonus’ questions. I love that the author doesn’t specifically state an age range for the questions because all kids bloom at different rates in math.
The equations used to solve each problem are in the back of the book for reference. The books cover topics like counting, comparisons, adding, subtracting, multiplication, division, and some beginning algebra.
My girls have really enjoyed these books and they provide just enough challenge for both of them. Math word problems can be really challenging for many kids but these books have given my girls more confidence. And the best part – these books will grow with your kids!
The fourth book that we haven’t checked out yet is called “How many Guinea pigs can fit on a plane?”. This book is for even the most advanced little mathematicians! We hope to check it out soon!
