Marvellous Maths by Jonathan Litton

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book of the Year 2014 - Best Book with Facts

An interactive, engaging and exciting exploration of maths, from the invention of zero to the geometry of a donut!


Marvellous Maths by Jonathan Litton

Clear, humorous text, bright illustrations and interactive novelties help explain topics including numbers, geometry, probability, transformations and statistics. The focus is on making maths accessible and exciting, so each topic has an investigation for young numbersmiths to try at home.


i hated maths a child but if i had been given Marvellous Maths things might have been different. It's a brilliant interactive and entertaining look at key stage 1 and 2 maths, covering subjects such as numbers, probability, geometry, and statistics with flaps to open, wheels to turn and ideas of things to make and investigations to carry out. It also relates maths to real life which helps in seeing the subject as a useful, practical skill rather than a pointless exercise. -- Clare Poole Booksellers

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