"Time spent with our children is limited, leaving us scrambling for more meaningful ways to build life-long relationships with them. As parents, we want to make the most of every opportunity, but it's tough. It's here where Table Talk Math offers simple ways for us to purposefully connect with the ones we love, but in a mathy kind of way. Through the eyes of his own childhood, John Stevens shares the personal stories that helped foster his own curiosity in the world around him and he invites you to do the same--just as his parents did for him."
"John Stevens is much more than a math teacher; he's a storyteller. In Table Talk Math, he invites us into his home and shows us, through personal vignettes with his two children, how we can work math into our own everyday conversations. Enhanced with contributions from a team of math innovators and written in a refreshingly readable style, Table Talk Math give parents easy ideas for bringing math home in authentic and relevant ways."
"How appropriate that a book designed to help parents have conversations about math with their children is written in such a conversational format. If more authors approached math in the way that John Stevens does in Table Talk Math, we might be able to begin to erase the stigma that surrounds math in our culture."
"Table Talk Math is chock-full of stories that will make you feel like you're seated at John's table. This practical guide provides the perfect balance of accessible resources, empowering coaching, and authentic humor. Teachers and parents, get ready to pull up a chair, and invite students of all ages to join mathematical conversations that develop number sense, perseverance, and joy."
"Parents know the value of reading with their children from a young age. Table Talk Math not only brings to light the importance of doing math with children but also teaches exactly how to do it! John shares a multitude of strategies and diverse resources that appeal to children of all ages, from Pre-K through high school. These fascinating resources will make exploring math with your children the most highly anticipated part of your dinner routine! Avoid math anxiety and begin fostering a love of mathematics in your children today!"
"As an elementary school principal, I'll do everything I can to get Table Talk Math in the hands of parent communities. John Stevens' honest experiences about the power of having meaningful and intentional conversations with kids is truly transformative. If you're looking for ways to promote curiosity, confidence, and risk taking in your own children, this book is, without a doubt, for you!"
"John Stevens works harder than anyone I know. In this book, he's scoured the Internet and connected with real-life math teachers to find accessible, understandable, tangible ways for parents to support their students in math, the least-accessible subject for many parents. In Table Talk Math, parents will find tips and tricks, ideas that we wish all of our students' parents would use. Stevens is making math accessible for parents."

I found this book through following the Table Talk Math website and receiving the newsletters. It suggests great topics of conversation to have with kids based on everyday things. With summer coming up, I want to support my children’s learning and help maintain their skills. In the past I have purchased workbooks with every intention of having my kids do a few pages a day. Unfortunately this never lasts long as our summer schedule gets busy (or perhaps more relaxed) and the workbooks just collect dust. Since I was enjoying the Table Talk Math newsletters, I bought this book hoping it would give me more examples of math we could talk about over the summer. It does that and so much more.
My favorite part of the book is at the end of each chapter, there are specific tips for how to talk to my child about math. Stevens shares ways to encourage your child and how to keep the conversation positive. (Trust me there have been many not so pleasant times together during the school year trying to work on homework together.)
The Table Talk Math book is easy to read and understandable for parents, no matter what your math comfort level is. I felt like I was having my own personal conversation with the author as he shared his experiences as a child, parent, and math teacher. Plus, I really can have conversations with the author as he is very accessible on Twitter and includes a hashtag for the book to continue the conversation online.
