“Overdeck debuts with a just-irreverent-enough book . . . . She shows that she knows her audience and loves her subject. Paillot (the My Weird School series) is a great choice for collaborator . . . he does it all with a good-hearted, goofy energy that should propel readers through the pages.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
“[This program] may have the potential to make bedtime math problems as loved as the bedtime story. . . . Hats off to Laura Overdeck. This project is a winner. A simple idea that may have as much of an impact on improving the science, technology, engineering and math interest in our children as many other well-funded programs.” ―Wired/GeekDad
“We all know we should read to our kids. But even if bedtime stories are routine in your house, when's the last time you gave your kids a bedtime math problem? Probably never. And that's one reason American students might struggle in a future that requires mathematical literacy... Maybe if more children grew up doing bedtime math problems, those numbers would be different.” ―USA Today
“Besides stopping the bad-mouthing of our own math skills and making sure that we're distributing our numbers-related conversations equally among our sons and daughters, what can a parent do to increase "math awareness" in our everyday lives? How about a bedtime math problem? . . . [in Bedtime Math]They're meant to be solved in their heads, and to promote both giggles and mathematical thought.” ―New York Times Motherlode Blog
About the Author
Laura Overdeck has a BA in astrophysics from Princeton University and knows numbers. Since she enjoys them so much, she (along with her husband John) decided to give their three children math problems instead of bedtime stories, and BEDTIME MATH was born. Visit her on the Web at bedtimemath.org.

By using the funny stories and questions in the book I managed to teach her the concepts of solving basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and she found it great fun to be able to solve problems with 'big numbers' all by herself to the point that she's been asking me to do maths with her all the time.
I'm super proud of my girl and extremely pleased with this book. If you feel your child is ready for basic arithmetics give this a try. I will certainly be purchasing the other books in the series.
The author's explanation of how the book works helped them accept the initial idea.
I even used this at camp last week to quiet down the cabin of elementary aged girls at bed time. They weren't so sure the first night, but asked for it the following two nights! Then I prayed, we said our good-nights, and they pretty much gave into the sleep that is needed at the end of a busy camp day.
Now, it's time to buy the next book!
