Sixth grade math is kicking my butt. It has been a challenge for me and I mean a real challenge. I am having to learn new study approaches and even multiple hours studying. So the thought of reading a math book made me think twice, but it was worth it.

This book is about Dr O and his daughter, Arya. He is teaching her various math concepts in a very fun way. I wish math had been taught like this. Even though it is some complicated concepts, it seems fun and achievable. It has helped me gain back some math confidence and understand why I need to put the effort in.

It is hard to describe a book about math. This is not a textbook at ALL. It is graphic novel style and novel style. It is a hybrid book.

Kids should not skip this book because it is about math. Give it a try because it is a fun, medium length read. It helps you see how math concepts build on each other. It helps you understand how math is used every day.

Now I need to go studying multipying and dividing fraction, integers & mixed numbers.
