Last year, while looking for some ideas online to help my 2nd grader with Math practice exercises that we can do at home, I stumbled upon BedtimeMath.org. It’s really inspiring to see a site purely dedicated to helping kids who struggle with Math and numbers. I’ve since recommended this site to my friends after finding the daily Math ideas and activities very helpful. I even signed up for their daily newsletter and that too, has a lot of helpful information and great ideas on how to incorporate Math problems in your child’s daily routines or activities.. or places you go or things you do together as a family.. so you can use those experiences as (Math) learning opportunities for your child and more!
So when I was contacted to review their very first Math book, Bedtime Math: A Fun Excuse to Stay Up Late by Laura Overdeck, I readily accepted the offer. My eight year old Gabriel- who loves Math and numbers, really love this book! This book is a chocful of kid-friendly, never boring math problems and puzzles your kids will truly have fun tackling. There are over 100 math riddles on topics from submarines to roller coasters and flamingos and more! You can even choose from three different levels of challenge – wee ones, little kids, and big kids – pick one that’s appropriate for your kids’ age or learning level.
Math and numbers need not be dry and intimidating for your child. Bedtime Math aims to make math a fun part of kids’ everyday lives! For me and my soon to-be 3rd grader, this book is nothing short of amazing! The Math riddles and problems in this book are also great conversation starters with your child at bedtime or at any time of the day!
I will be giving away a copy of this book during the Back To School Giveaway event here at Hip Mama’s Place come August! Stay tuned for more details soon.
