The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book sets out to prove that maths has more in common with art than many might think, and that it can be truly beautiful; it achieves its aim. A series of clearly explained and attractively designed activities demonstrate how numbers and shapes can make fascinating patterns. Readers will learn how to make delicate snowflakes, using clever folding and cutting; how to make a three-dimensional fractal; and even to do some mathematical magic. It’s fascinating and will provide children with hours of entertainment, even those who wouldn’t normally claim to enjoy maths. A useful glossary includes words and phrases such as congruent, polyomino and tessellation, and it finishes with ideas for more smart art projects. ~ Andrea Reece

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.
