It’s been just over one month since the Bedtime Math book came out, and the overwhelming response to it has shown that all of us together – me, you, other parents and grandparents and teachers – are part of a movement. A major one.
There are lots of adults out there who don’t like math, and it’s turned math into a not-so-beloved thing in our culture. With Bedtime Math we hope to overhaul that by showing the next generation of kids that math is a blast, a treat just like playtime or dessert. And you all, by getting the book and sharing it with the little people in your life, have helped this movement grow. Thank you for helping spread the word!
As the book rolled out – and sold out twice on Amazon – we noticed some really interesting things about this movement we’re all a part of, including:
All that said, the book is just another step we’re taking at Bedtime Math to make math fun for kids, and hopefully for the grown-ups, too. And again, by being part of the book’s success, you all are having an effect not just on the kids in your life but on other kids by helping raise awareness. Thank you and let’s get ready for book 2, coming in the spring!
