Reviews

'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information' - Parents in Touch; 'Maths is, according to this addition to Usborne's popular See Inside series a way of finding out about the world . With maths, you can count things, and measure things, and solve all sorts of problems . The emphasis is not on how to do it, but rather on the uses maths can be put to and the enjoyment to be found in playing with mathematical ideas. The focus is on applying maths to everyday functions and the full colour pages are cheerfully illustrated with small figures busily engaged in a variety of activities. Final spreads add to the prevailing sense of fun with the games that employ mathematical and logical skills. While the maths covered loosely corresponds to, and builds on, that learned in years 3 and 4, confident younger mathematicians will enjoy exploring the new ideas to be found here' - Guardian Education'
