We love hearing wild ideas from our fans and answering their questions each week – so we’ve written a whole book about them! Combining questions from real readers with surprising answers, How Many Guinea Pigs Can Fit on a Plane? proves that numbers can be fun – and that math is power. Available now in bookstores!
In the spirit of making math as beloved as the bedtime story, founder Laura Overdeck’s Bedtime Math books pair our wacky math problems with colorful, high-energy illustrations to create a book you can cuddle with. Best of all, proceeds from the books come back to Bedtime Math Foundation to support our free programming.

“Overdeck debuts with a just-irreverent-enough book…she uses ripped-from-cable-TV themes (“Exploding Food,” “Sports You Shouldn’t Try at Home”) and breezy reality-based topics to tee up three levels of challenge. …Paillot (the My Weird School series) is a great choice for collaborator: called upon to illustrate everything from praying mantises to human cannonballs, he does it all with a good-hearted, goofy energy that should propel readers through the pages.”
