“Math” & “Entertaining”, – Do those words belong together??? Thanks to a grant, our library is able to purchase a number of books for children that promote STEM learning. Our newest purchase is the “Sir Cumference” series.
Each book is well illustrated and tells a fictional story about the adventures of Sir Cumference, his wife Lady Di of Ameter, and their son Radius. A different math concept is introduced in each story, which helps children see how math can be useful and fun. This is a series of eleven books, and all but one is on Accelerated Reader.
(I’ll let you in on a secret: I’m 59 years old, and I enjoyed reading some of the books. I may have even learned a few things. 😉 )
