The story focuses on a child whose math teacher, Mrs. Fibonacci, tells the class that there are numbers all around. Then the child sees math everywhere! There are fraction problems at lunch, probability while getting dressed, division when it's time to share cupcakes and logic while the parents decide who is right. It's such a fun book with so many opportunities to have your students stop and solve the problems, but beware that the answers are on the back cover!
I love this book because its so fun for the reader to act out. As the story evolves, I like to read with a sort of frenetic voice to mimic the character's energy as he is plagued by all the math following him around! The kids get really into it!
I also love this book because it is a great way to get your students to think about all of the applications of math they use every single day. When I read this with my students, I have them write their own scenes to add into the book. Without fail, I have students who come to school the next day and want to tell the class about the math they saw when they left school!
