April has finally arrived, which means Mia’s birthday is just around the corner. Do you know what else it means? It’s Maths Month! Since 1999, April has been used to celebrate math and to increase public understanding and appreciation of math. To celebrate, we were recently very kindly sent a copy of The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars **(aff)** to review.

The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars, written by David Cole and illustrated by Shannon O’Toole is a fantastic story of three children, who, as the title may give away, are very good at maths. Together, they form their own club, The Math Kids, and their mathematics abilities prove to be incredibly useful when they are faced with problems bigger than, and including, extra homework!

Mia is incredibly academic, but maths is something she sometimes struggles with. She becomes easily frustrated if she can’t figure out an answer so this book is perfect for reminding her about how fun and useful maths can be.

She is enjoying reading The Math Kids and has already expressed interest in reading similar books such as The Math Kids: A Sequence of Events **(aff)**. She absolutely adores reading but has a particular taste in books, getting the Mia seal of approval can be tough but it’s safe to say The Math Kids have got it!

I have three copies of The Math Kids: The Prime-Time Burglars to give away to three lucky readers – to be in with a chance of winning a copy of this marvelous mathematical tale enter below.

Please note – entrants found to be entering under multiple personas will be disqualified. Giveaway ends 16/4/2019 at midday – winners will be contacted via email.

I think byg making it more visual and relating maths problems to situations kids can relate to age appropriately it can make it seem more interesting and engaging.

It’s numbers, so we play games, we move coins around, have little counters to play with, and generally try to make the kids understand that it’s all about how to survive on as little as possible and show they know the difference between a penny and a pound! We also give them little prizes for working things out without help xx
