From One-A-Roo Sue to Ten-Ti-Pede Pete, each book leads the kids on a fun adventure with a new lovable character!
I’ve seen it time and time again,
A kiddo sitting in that little desk across from me with math problems in front of them.
Their eyes fill with fear as they build a big wall between themselves and math. I know what happens next, a lifetime of struggling with numbers.
I wanted nothing more than to break through the wall and rebuild that kiddo’s confidence! Every time this happened I thought to myself, “How can I take the fear out of math?”.
Then one day it hit me, I have never met a kiddo who is scared of birthdays, and birthdays are math!
17 years later…
Welcome to the Crazy Birthday Candle Jungle!
Each book is a math lesson in disguise!
Kids will never know,
when they’re reading with Monkey Moe,
that math is what they are learning,
when these pages are a turning.
Stories so fun and exciting,
there won’t be any more fighting,
and parents will think they took the easy path,
to get their kids a little more math!
What our readers have to say:
“I thought they would be confusing for my little Kindergarteners, but they loved them, they begged me to read them again. I read only the 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s to support skip counting, the students made the connection without a problem, and they helped to finally get the “light bulb turned on” for a couple of them.”
Thank you for using your talent to help kids…and for setting up a system to get the books to the kids in need.
“It was the first time one of my boys actually showed interest in a book . He asked if he could read them during our centers, he sat for 20 minutes looking at them!”
“We loved how the kids not only loved the characters in the book, but took to the math so quickly. Once they read through the books, we had the chance to play some games with the cards and it was amazing how the kids picked up the concepts from the book applied them to the games.”
“He (Mark) has developed an excellent method for teaching and capturing the attention of small children. He does make learning fun for them.”
