Math + Magic = A Great Picture Book!
“Well - hi there! It’s so nice to see you! How did you find my kingdom here / Where magical patterns in math appear?”
The story is told in rhyme and introduces the reader to three floors of 11X math: multiplying by single, double, and triple digit numbers.
The first floor is simple, the third most difficult. There is a pattern to each floor's lesson, and the reader, with some help, is asked to discover the pattern.
What Concerned Me: Nothing
What I Liked Best: As an adult I found this book enlightening. I see the story as a wonderful teaching aid for classrooms and individual readers. The illustrations are extremely well done and the story, which could have been a bit dry and boring, didn’t touch on either.
