Monster Math Review and Giveaway!!!

I was so excited to receive my monster package in the mail... not as excited as Ryleigh... because...well... what 4 year old doesn't like mail? Anyway...right from the get go this book caught my attention...the packaging was so fun and the box looked like a monster had taken a (pretend) bite out of it...

You Can Count on Monsters written by Richard Schwartz is a great way to learn prime numbers and factoring from 1-100. There are monsters for each prime number... which really catches the eye... Each Monster has something that relates to its number, but sometimes you have to look hard and count to find it.

Ryleigh and Braeden are a little too young for this book, but I will definitely use it when they are older. It is fun to read and the pictures are great!




You can purchase You can Count on Monsters for $15.99 on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Learn more from a fun and informative feature of You Can Count on Monsters on NPR!!

99 Monster is very abstract. Guess that's why I like it. What an unusual book!

Big fan of the 11-sided monster. I'm going to name him Rocky Boxoa... because looks like a boxy boxer.
