Book Review: Math Quest The Museum of Mysteries

When your child loves maths but doesn't enjoy reading it is great to be recommended a book which is right up their street. These Math Quest books are a perfect combination for him so I ordered one from Amazon (affiliate link):

The math puzzles are set at KS2 level so year 3 and upwards. Younger children may need to work on the puzzles with the adults unless they are math whizzes! Don't panic parents about not knowing what all the maths terms mean as there is a helpful glossary and explanation in the back:

I had a go myself and really enjoyed it - top tip don't take your finger out of the page you were on before fully reading the next clue or you might forget which symbol you are looking for... This was my live video I made about the book:

If you buy it let me know what you think!
