Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Jean Little Library.

My selection is "Eat your math homework: recipes for hungry minds" written by Ann McCallum and illustrated by Leeza Hernandez.

McCallum entertains while she informs in this collection of math inspired recipes.  After providing some basic kitchen tips, she explores the Fibonacci sequence with snack sticks arranged on skewers.  Fractions feature chips and Tessellations are tasty in two-color brownies.  Probability Trail Mix, Variable Pizza Pi, and Milk and Tangram Cookies, round out the collection of treats.  The text is completed with a math review, glossary, and index.

The colorful cartoon style illustrations by Hernandez add an additional layer of exuberant fun.

This looks great. My kids love cooking with me, so this might be a great intro to math for them. Thanks for sharing!
