    Fun book to get the math wheels turning

    My daughter has enjoyed reading this so much. I don't think it will work so well as a curriculum by itself, as was suggested to me, but it will make a great addition to one.

    These books are amazing

    It is fun to teach math using stories. Definitely a supplement (not in-depth enough to be used alone).
