Math Curse is great!!! It establishes a mindset in the beginning and follows it throughout the entire story. A little boy is cursed with math problems relating to everything he does in his everyday life. He thinks of every action as a math problems, and challenges himself (and the reader) to figure out an array of crazy questions that relate to his life. There are many questions that would be great to figure out as a class, but probably should be read to third grade and above. Many math concepts are covered in this book. It is an adorable way to think about math, and makes it actually look fun. The illustrations are collage-like and really make you stare at the pages to find what is in store. I would recommend this book to any teacher who is trying to spice up any type of math lesson. Would be a great hook for a new math unit.
