Math Curse

Most of us, who spend time with small children, know The Stinky Cheese Man by Jon Sciszka and Lane Smith but until yesterday, I had never heard of Math Curse their very funny and (mostly) mathematically accurate book about the trials and tribulations of a kid whose math teacher (Mrs. Fibonacci ) convinces him that "you can think of almost everything as a math problem." Life does become a series of math problems over which our hero triumphs; but then the science teacher (Mr. Newton of course) says "you can think of almost everything as a science problem."

A funny and fun book about math with an engaging main character who could be either a girl or a boy; now that is a step toward FairerScience.

PS Sorry for the lack of posts; I've been on vacation, which is why I've been reading the Math Curse
