Reviews - What do customers think about The Math Book for Girls and Other Beings Who Count?

NOT just for girls!  Jan 1, 2007
I bought this book for my daughter who isn't always excited about doing her math. She read it cover to cover in one sitting! Her older brother then swiped it and became engrossed in it himself!

This picture book is a great way to show kids that math can indeed be both fun and useful. It's an interesting blend of fiction and non-fiction. The real-life math sidebars demonstrate how scientists and others use math in their work. There is a cute story around which math facts are presented. The book's "Math fairy" who goes by the name of Nora, is a memorable character with much enthusiasm for her subject. The concepts are not delved into deeply, but there is enough there to give the reader a clear idea when topics such as symmetry, probability, and moebius strips are discussed. I'd say that the book is most appropriate for kids operating at the 3th-6th grade level in math.
 
I love it  Dec 11, 2002
I think it's great because it really gets into math and how much you need it. I love Nora, she is so fun she really shows you how to get down into many fun activities like to see how big your foot would be if you were a giant, and how to bake a cake!
 
For pre-teen girls  Oct 17, 2001
I bought this book for a grand-niece. The reading level depends on the intellectual level of the child, but it is generally for pre-teen girls. It is organized as an activity book for young girls having small parties with their friends, with mathematically related activities. It would probably appeal to some children and not to others.
