Learning math can be a difficult task for any child, and for many adults. But learning to work with numbers need not be a dreaded experience; in fact, it can even be fun! Scott Flansburg, also known as "the Human Calculator," can help kids learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide without the anxiety and frustration which often accompanies learning these skills. Using techniques that make numbers easy to work with and by demonstrating how math is essential to everyday life (contrary to the lament of a great percentage of students), Math Magic for Your Kids can help maximize your child's potential to understand math and enjoy it in the process.

Flansburg has helped millions of "math phobic" adults with his popular lectures and best-selling book, Math Magic. Now he is reaching out to help America's "math phobic" kids. Math Magic for Your Kids makes it easy, even for those adults who suffer from math anxiety, to help the next generation get a leg up on essential math skills.The book is specifically designed to be combined with various mathematics curricula approved by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Aimed at children aged 5 through 8, it can also benefit younger children who demonstrate a readiness for advanced number concepts and for older children who need reinforcement of basic math skills. For kids who struggle with simple math skills, Flansburg provides activities to "build a child's math sense" and help reinforce math concepts.

Math Magic for Your Kids also contains information and anecdotes that relate math concepts to everyday situations, explains principles that facilitate learning in general, and provides shortcut methods as well as challenging puzzles and riddles to keep kids interested and involved. Games and exercises are designed to be executed independently or with parents' help.

I really enjoyed this book. Filled not only with fun and relevant activities to supplement the school curriculum, but also loaded with interesting trivia and puzzles/riddles.
