“We want kids to feel about math the way they feel about dessert after dinner.”
—Laura Overdeck, TIME Magazine
Night vision. Pillow forts. Glitter. That’s what math should be about! In a world where far too many grown-ups dislike math or are even afraid of it, Bedtime Math’s goal is to overhaul that culture. Just as we read for pleasure, we should do math for fun, too. So we’re serving up truly kid-appealing math to raise a next generation who loves numbers.
With this follow-up to Laura Overdeck’s first bestselling book, Bedtime Math: This Time It’s Personal is all about YOU and the stuff you do day to day. Inside this book, families will find more mischief-making math problems, on everything from waterslides to overfed pets to underwear. And with three different levels of challenge (Wee ones, Little kids, and Big kids) plus a Bonus question, there’s something for everyone. We can make numbers fun, and change the world, one Bedtime Math puzzle at a time. The book was just selected by Amazon as one of the top 20 children’s books of 2014 so far – and best of all, our proceeds from the book fund Bedtime Math’s programming to grow our movement.
