Math Curse

Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith

The main character, a young girl, hears her teacher announce that everything can be thought of as a math problem, and suddenly feels she is under a math curse. She now sees everything in her life as a math problem. Some of the problems she encounters involve real math, like asking how many quarts are in a gallon, while others are there for humor like asking whether tuna fish + tuna fish = fournafish. This is a fun, energetic book filled with numerous references to different math concepts (measurement, multiplication, addition, subtraction, fractions, estimation, and data) that kids would enjoy as both a read-aloud and for revisiting on their own.
