It was not worth the money for the money. Moreover, my children found it too simplistic and silly. If you are under 10, buy it. After that, don 't bother.
   Fun for kids and adults!
I heard so many of these through a blog and wondered why I had never heard before about them! I bought this and have fun reading it to my three-year-old. She does not understand the meaning of the play on words yet. But she loves the stories. I LOL forward to the day that she understands the deeper, mathematical significance so that we can enjoy the stories in a whole new light!
   Best Book Series for Math!
This entire book series is absolutely amazing for teaching math to students. All books have great stories that incorporate math vocabulary and concepts throughout the book. My fifth graders loved when I read this book aloud to them and had a fun time identifying all the math vocabulary in the text. This book is great to introduce or review math concepts, and is a great way to incorporate literacy into mathematics.
   Has little things that help kids remember geometry
*** Spoiler Alert*** My kid thinks the pair of lells are hilarious to the point of now never forgetting what parallel lines look like, side by side 2 dragon tails. They're not really funny, but he thinks the idea is very silly and laughs about it every time we read it.
   Great for kids who love math
The books by Sir Cumference are great for kids interested in math. My 8yo son, who loves math, finds these, though my 8yo daughter, who is not interested in math, devours these uninteresting as well.
   Sir Cumference is Great!
As a math teacher, I enjoyed reading this book to my students. The math terms that connect the book together are very creative in the way they are presented. If you read this book to a class of middle school students, it will take you ten minutes to read completely if the class is attentive. The mathematics described in the book can help students to later remember these terms.
   Love the series, this is one of my favorites
I use these books with my 3rd-grade class, towards the end of the year after they have heard me use some of the math terms. Although not a 3rd-grade standard, I use this book to introduce students to protractors for measuring angles.
   arrived on time
I love to use these books with my middle school kids. They are a bit of a long read aloud, but are so silly and use all the math language that they are a fun introduction.
   Medieval times and math!
I love how the story was so brilliantly meshed with medieval life and math. After the purchase, I bought two more of these books. I think that all ages could enjoy the story, but certainly school children who are actually learning about the subject.
