I am learning something. Kiddo is listening, and gleaning the simple things out of it. Tonight he went off to swimming swearing he is going to narrow down what times itself is equal to 5. ("And," I whispered to him as he pulled on his gym backpack, "math is so BIG, there are things about it you can't imagine!" "No!" "Can't you imagine there are things you can't imagine?" And his eyes grew wider, and he ran to the car.)

I feel like books with math are the best. I used that Penrose book when I was teaching 6th grade math back when I was a school teacher... Those Sir Cumference books are also good. Oh, and The Number Devil. And, of course, there are a million of them for younger kids... Math and books... ah :)
