Bedtime Math 2: This Time It’s Personal

by Laura Overdeck
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

A patron recommended this one to me and said his seven-year-old loves it, even more than the original (Bedtime Math), because it has different levels of questions (wee ones, little kids, and big kids). The questions sort of build on each other to make a story (as in, in one question you’re playing around with glitter and the next you’re taking a bath, or a whole section about the human body). Most of the questions are pretty inventive, though a lot of the “wee ones” questions are counting (which is fine, there’s not a ton of variety you can do with a 3-year-old and they do get into some patterns and colors and other pre-math kinds of groundwork) so can seem a bit repetitive to an older reader. Overall, though, very well done and a good way especially to combat summer slide when it comes to math by doing a page or two per night most nights.
