I think my favorite thing about this book is the perspective on teaching math that is communicated. I appreciate the focus on problem solving and logical reasoning, on playfulness, and on communicating and enjoying math together. The games are intended to be fun and to get kids (and adults) thinking and building their number sense, not just to practice a skill. I also enjoyed that the history of the games is given and that there are variations to try for many of them.
I did find the format of this book rather text-dense for a book of math games. This made it harder to look at a game quickly to remind myself of how it is played before/while trying it out with my child. I'm not sure what the solution is...Maybe numbered steps? I did find the illustrations helpful.
I certainly encourage giving this book a try if you are looking for math games for younger children.
The games use very simple materials, mostly cards and dice, and the few boards that are needed are provided. Each game also has tips on how to customise or extend it - maybe for players of different abilities, or non-competitive options. My children are always pleased, even excited, when I suggest one of these games, even ones that seem terribly simple like Tens Concentration. Sometimes they even ask to play them unprompted!
I have both books on Kindle, and really I would prefer a hard copy as it would be easier to keep handy, mark, and refer to during play. So get the paperbacks if you can!
