As someone who avoided my math homework, so I could keep reading my book, I could have used more books like this one.

Any bibliophile-classics-Loving-homeschooling parent is sure to love this book. Good read aloud. The middle kids and up understand better to work the problems out, the littles just guess for fun.

An unusual offering, pairing enjoyable illustrations with re-workings of poems by mostly famous authors, in the form of mathematical puzzles. Would be appropriate for late second grade to maybe fifth grade (although, I am tempted to say through high school, as once students are hit by standardize...

This book's title clearly spells out exactly what its pages contain. Cleverly combining poetry and math in 14 poems based on classic lines written by famous but now deceased poets, Lewis poses problems that need solutions. One of my favorites included "Edgar Allan Poe's Apple Pie" with this intro...

Oh I wish I was teaching math again. It would be great fun to pose these poems (problems) to the students. J. Patrick Lewis has written arithmetic problems within poems based on well-known poet’s poems, like "The Raven" by Poe, Nash’s "The Termite", and Farjeon’s "W Is For Witch". I guess that th...

Our oldest borrowed this book from her elementary school library - it's a wonderful book of poems that combines the rhythm and style of famous poems with a math puzzle. The poems are often humorous and most of the math is fairly straightforward. I would recommend having a pencil and paper handy,...

classic poems x math = 1 cooky funny book Mr. Lewis has done a wonderful job spoofing classic poems such as Edgar Allen Poe's 'Raven' or A.A. Milne's 'Us By Two' for the children with a touch of math. The illustrations are silly and eye-catching, perfect for engaging the reader. Some of my favorite...

Disappointing. The poems are just story problems forced into the scheme of famous poets' works. The puzzles are mostly simple arithmetic - the hardest part is figuring out what the narrator is asking of the solver as he stumbles over the rhymes. And though there are brief bios of the poets, the o...
