This cheerful picturebook has an unusual and very effective method of encouraging an interest in maths in young children. Aliyah’s cousin Robin is taking her on a camping trip. The destination is a mystery and first they have to go shopping. Shopping trips with Robin are lots of fun it seems, and throughout she sets Aliyah a series of problem-solving challenges – what fruit will fit best into their rucksacks, how long will their train journey take – while also regaling her with stories and snippets of information.

Later, as the two are enjoying marshmallows toasted over their campfire, Aliya realises that maths is everywhere, including in nature, and has decided she wants to be a mathematician like her cousin.

The book concludes with a set of suggestions for using maths to discover more about the world around us, and there’s a fun maths game to play with friends too. The book has enough of a narrative to hold children’s interest, and the illustrations are fun and appealing too, and it certainly succeeds in its intention of demonstrating how maths is key to so much in our lives, and enjoyable at that.
