The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars – AD sent for review and giveaway

Did you know that April is Maths and Statistics international Awareness month?  I wasn’t aware of this until we were asked to look at The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars by David Cole recently.  Published through Common Deer Press the book is aimed at children in Key Stage Two.

The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars

I’m hoping that the 114 page paperback book is going to give my son a bit more confidence with maths, whilst having fun. In The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars best friends Jordan and Justin are the only children in the class who are in the advanced maths class, until newcomer Stephanie Lewis arrives.  She’s super confident, comes from California and loves maths as much as the boys do. The three become friends over a love of numbers and a dislike of the class bullies Robbie, Bill and Bryce.

The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars

The friends decide to form The Maths Kids group to solve puzzles and they started with solving the dilemma of the seating plan for Jordan’s sisters dinner party.  There are challenges set throughout The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars which you as the reader can try to solve yourself before discovering whether the friends managed to work it out for themselves.  The answers are in the back of the book.

When there are a series of burglaries in the area, the friends soon realise that their maths skills might help them to solve the mystery of who the villain or villains might be.

The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars is a good read and one that makes maths fun for kids.  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below (I can earn from qualifying purchases) in case your children fancy taking on the challenge.

  1. Maths is a favourite in our house, my 14 year old son, 6 year old daughter and I all like maths, it was my favourite lesson in school and my children are the same, my youngest has just turned 2 so is to young to know yet xx

  2. My sister was so clever at maths that she got one of the top marks in the country in her O levels. I was so dumb they wouldn’t even let me continue the year’s studies. Luckily, the children have a good grasp.

  3. Most of us, I love maths and always have done, I think people have different skills and for some that is maths and for others it’s a different subject

  4. My partner! We have homework covered between us, I’m better at English and the arts, and my partner prefers maths and the sciences

  5. I enjoy Maths. My eldest daughter was always good at Maths from an early age. But my youngest daughter always struggled. I would love this book for my step-granddaughter
