This is more than just an encouraging math book for kids. It showcases the power of perseverance and teaches the reader that we are all more capable than we believe. Excellent story for kids of all ages.

The Power of Perseverance in “Everyone Can Learn Math”

After reading “Everyone Can Learn Math” to my four-year-old daughter for the first time, I asked her what she thought. She replied, “I love it. Can we read it again?” I can think of no better endorsement for Alice Aspinall’s book. Nonetheless, here is mine:

This book, inspired by Jo Boaler’s work on creating a growth mindset, sends an imperative message to young children: math is a language everyone can learn. Young Amy, the math-frustrated pr

What an impactful book which illustrates the concept that your brain is like a muscle, which can be worked, pushed and strengthened to maximize your learning potential. Since the story clearly emphasizes the power of perseverance, Everyone Can Learn will appeal not only to families with children who are struggling with math, but to all children who may need encouragement about taking on a 360 approach to learning.

I had the honour and pleasure of reading ''Everyone Can Learn Math'' to four classes during our school's Math/Move/Read-a-thon. The students had already had a long day by the time I was rotating through the grade 3s and 4s, but they were engaged in the story, and really seemed to enjoy the experience. I think will also be seeing a spike in followers this week... Thank you, Mrs. A.!! :) ...more

Love love love this book! In today's educational climate where too many kids believe that if they struggle that they're therefore incapable, Alice's book reminds kids and parents that nothing is more instrumental to learning math than cultivating a growth mindset. An amazingly accessible story which uses Carol Dweck's philosophies and translates them into everyday language, certain to make the most math-phobic kid warm up to the idea of learning to love math!

Lynn McLaughlin Your child(ren) won't say, "I can't!" after reading this book. The focus is about overcoming a defeatist mindset in math, but the lessons apply to life. Alexandria's illustrations are wonderful and portray Amy's (main character) emotions beautifully. Each experience that takes Amy from a place where she thinks she "can't" to "I can when I keep working at it". I'll read this to my great nieces/nephews and put it aside until I'm a grandma! LOVE IT!

Such a wonderful growth mindset based book that encourages children to think differently when solving mathematical problems. Read this story to my grade 3 students who loved it, felt inspired and related to the characters in the story.
