Reviews - What do customers think about Brown Paper School book: I Hate Mathematics! (Brown Paper School Books)?

Not too syked  Nov 1, 2007
I was not very syked when I got this book. After reading so much about it I thought it would be a good buy for my daughter who I have trouble getting to enjoy or even be interested in doing well in math. It is written to the student, which I thought was odd. And is aimed at a higher age group than she is (7 yrs). I just don't have time to read so much about it and play the little games etc. Very disappointed.
Zany and fun  Aug 29, 2007
I, like some other reviewer, got this book around 15 years ago - a Scholastic Book Club purchase. I didn't hate math at the time (certainly don't now!), but the title was intriguing. The book was a lot of fun! I love the illustrations and the fact that most of the text is in that handwriting font style (I think). It's very informal and makes fun of adults. There ae all these funny, crazy pages with topics such as how to get close to a pigeon or how many popcorn kernels it takes to fill up a room or your mouth (or something). There are also several games - ideas for tutors, teacher, parents... Topics don't get drawn out so long that a kid can't pay attention, and you can learn about stuff you wouldn't normally talk about in adding and subtracting class. Basically, you can learn math and logic in a nice, fun, comfortable manner. I hope this book is still at my parent's house.
No go  Mar 24, 2007
My 9 year old son did not like this book. He said, "you got me a book that says I hate Match, but then the author says that math is great. That makes no sense, Mom!" He's tried to pick it up a couple of times, but it has not sparked his interest.
Great book!  Sep 18, 2005
I have a daughter that literally HATES math. From the moment I told her of this book, she's been intrigued. She's read the book and says it makes math more interesting. I'm very happy with my purchase.
AWESOME!!!  Aug 17, 2005
This is an awesome book. I especially like the part that sets out to prove that grownups aren't as smart as they think they are. (Definitly true!) I think this book would be good for ages 9+. 8-year olds could do it but might need some help. I'm 10 and I was fine with it. Definitly worth it.
