I teach grade 3, and my students have enjoyed Riddle-iculous Math thoroughly. We like having the instant gratification of the answers tucked just below the riddles. (I've seen some riddle books with answers in mirror-writing or upside down, and that soon discourages some kids.) The riddles have a lot of truly clever humor and the bright, energetic art has a lot of kid appeal. My least favorite is probably the metric page. Other than that, I love this book. There's plenty of silly humor as in (What was a 12-inch ruler called in ancient Egypt? A short pharoah.) (What's a math teacher's favorite dessert? A pie chart.) But there's also plenty of math to be learned here in settings that are familiar ground for kids, such as an egg and spoon race, a pajama party, a pet store, a food fight. The idea of a boy named Bing who became rich as a king by doubling a penny every day of the month was especially intriguing. A great teaching tool and a fun read. I give this book two thumbs way up!
