I adore books like this that encourage kids to think about advanced concepts without patronizing them. The book actively encourages discussion, something that I don't think enough children's books do. I'll be sure to stock this in my classroom.
Very cool-- this is the kind of number-familiarity math training that I have always lacked. I love the idea of giving kids ease with the way numbers and information and mathematical ideas interact in the world. This would be a fantastic home-schooling resource... (I'm just sayin'. 3.5 days of instruction in my local public schools = not enough).

Even though, I think this book is geared for an upper elementary or middle school student, I believe this book could be adapted to 3rd grade to teach abstact thinking. Abstract thinking is sometimes a difficult concept, but this book has some great word problems to develop this skill.
Anno introduces math concepts to children. The first couple chapters could be used with a bright pre-schooler. The chapters get a little more complex as they go--probably early elementary level until the last chapter, which included some problems beyond my own math ability!
I love Anno's illustrations and unapologetic approach to math in real life. It simply is and the puzzles and drawings make it approachable for even this math phobic. It's too long to read in a sitting so I will be checking this out of the library often.

Picture puzzles, games, and simple activities introduce the mathematical concepts of multiplication, sequence and ordinal numbering, measurement, and direction
Taran and I had so much fun one morning with this book. Taran even decided to start making his own graphs to answer some questions we had.

This book is a fantastic resource for teaching maths from prep upwards. Brilliant explanations over a huge range of concepts
Went above and beyond all of my expectations. A solid 5 stars. Can't wait to try some of these out with my kids!
A great book with fun math activities in it; would be great for teaching math concepts and making them fun
A fun book that we've used for school. But we would've read it anyway.
