This book is filled with great "kid" pictures and large font. There are also plenty of laughs. I think people who need more math practice will really enjoy the "challenge" the boy faces in the book and even gives a laugh on the last page. I think it's great!
This book is a GREAT book for students who struggle with Math, and EVERYONE struggles with a problem now and then. It brings out the understanding that it can be confusing and it's just okay. It does it in a way that is fun and literate, as kids DO think Math is sometimes a Curse! I teach Middle School Special Education Math and of course this book is a RIGHT ON book for these students with Learning Disabilities in Math. When they hear this book they feel like someone understands them and it was written about them personally. It's a MUST have for my school library!
