Bedtime Math Book Review and #Giveaway

        I have to say one of the things I have always been terrible about with my children is reading to them at night before bed.  Each time I would attempt to read to them they would quickly get annoyed and want to either sleep or to watch a program and fall asleep to it.  I know how terrible this is but they have always seemed to learn better when it is their decision.  Being boys they enjoy the more interactive books and activities so we have always tried to incorporate those types of books during our day time reading sessions.

Bedtime Math: A Fun Excuse to Stay Up Late
        Thankfully because Dane and Alana are so far apart in age (10 years to be exact), Dane has always  been very advanced in all school areas.  When Declan came along and actually struggled quite a bit with speech, the kids all started reading together.  It has been the one activity I can finally get them to do together without the typical sibling arguing.  So when a friend contacted me about reviewing a new program/book called Bedtime Math, we were pretty pumped to add that additional interaction factor into our daily reading!

        I was quickly sent over the book to review and we of course had to open it the morning it arrived!  "Bedtime Math’s mission is simple: to make nightly math as common and beloved as the bedtime story. "  I find myself like most adults complaining that I am not up on the new math trends to help the kiddos with homework even though I studied engineering in college.  I don't want to see them struggle in any area really but especially in a subject such as math which you WILL use throughout your life.

        The Bedtime Math synopsis says "Inside this book, families will find fun, mischief-making math problems to tackle—math that isn't just kid-friendly, but actually kid-appealing. With over 100 math riddles on topics from jalapeños and submarines to roller coasters and flamingos, this book bursts with math that looks nothing like school. And with three different levels of challenge (wee ones, little kids, and big kids), there’s something for everyone. We can make numbers fun, and change the world, one Bedtime Math puzzle at a time."

        We especially loved that this book is not just geared towards one age group but honestly everyone!  Not only did Alana not get bored easily with the problems being to easy for her but she found it actually helped her keep her brain working with little riddles.  Some of the questions were easy enough for Declan at age 2, to simply count characters.  And Dane learned the most  being able to visualize as well as see direct examples while figuring out a few complicated math problems.
Cost/Available to Purchase:  $10.79 Bedtime Math 
Recommendation:  Definitely worth the money for this one.  This had great lessons for the kiddos and honestly kept them interested over and over.  Plus there is an online app and daily math problems on the website so all sorts of extras!
