Making Math fun: Little Learning Labs Math Games for Kids by Rebecca Rapoport; J.A. Yoder

When my children were in school, a wise teacher said to always encourage girls to do math and to let them know that they can do every bit as well in math as in English.  While this book is for all children, I was reminded of how important it is to introduce math as a fun subject and one that can lead to experimentation and knowledge.  Math is not just supposed to be learning the basic four functions as this book so ably proves.

Geared toward children ages six to ten (though I think older children too), the book is divided into sections on topics like geometry and fractals.  The experiments and activities are very hands on and photos help to show kids what to do.  Wise adults will encourage children to explore and not focus on perfection, but rather on the learning process as they do the activities that they find appealing.

Filled with things that can be done at home or school, this book is an excellent resource.  Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for this book in exchange for an honest review.
