Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What is a math teacher's favorite game? Divide and seek. Add the number of wheels on a bus plus the number of arms on an octopus plus a lot more crazy things and you get some strange math teacher-all illustrated in cartoon whimsy by Regan Dunnick. This silly book will delight young math whizzes and make math practice a bit more tolerable for the less-than-whizzes. Every page is filled with riddles that enable children to practice adding, subtracting, counting money, skip counting and solving problems: "If Mr. and Ms. Sweet-za only shared with Pete and Lisa, what fraction of the pizza would each get to eat-za? One-fourth. If Mr. and Ms. Sweet-za refused to share their pizza, what fraction of the pizza would each of them eat-za? One-half." The biggest disadvantage is that the answers are red-lettered just below the riddles-you might want to have a sticky note handy to cover up the answers so readers a chance to figure them out first. Riddle-iculous is perfect for extra credit or extra practice in the classroom and fun at home as well. 2003, Albert Whitman, Ages 5 to 10.

    Clever Math Riddles

    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!
