Book Talk Tuesday: Math for All Seasons

Yes I made it!  It's Tuesday and I'm here to link up with Mrs.Jump's Class for Book Talk Tuesday.

Today I thought I'd share this gem...

Click Picture to Check this book out on Amazon!

Have you ever come across this book?  This book is written by Greg Tang who is also the author of The Grapes of Math.  Unlike The Grapes of Math this story is geared for the little ones!  This book is filled with fun math puzzles to help build problem solving skills.   These fun riddles and lively pictures help kids to think about the many ways a problem can be solved.

Each riddle is displayed on a two page spread like this fall one.  Picture on one side and riddle on the other.

The riddles are season themed which makes this a great book to pull out at different times of the year.  

The large full page pictures make it easy for all to see when reading aloud and trying to solve.

After talking about each riddle and discussing the different ways to solve the problem you can check the back of the book to see if you solved the riddle correctly.  Tang includes explanations on how to solve each riddle.  Wouldn't this be a great book for students to explore with book buddies?  How fun!

What do you think of this book?  
Be sure to check out the linky and link up your favorite books too!

  1. I'd seen this book before, but I forgot about it. Going to put it on hold at the library. Thanks! Carrie
