Bedtime Math: The Truth Comes Out (Bedtime Math Series) The Truth Comes Out (Bedtime Math)
by Laura Overdeck

Our mission: to make math a fun part of kids’ everyday lives. When is the last time you gave your child a math problem just for fun? Yesterday? Last year? Maybe never? We all know it’s wonderful to read bedtime stories to kids, but the question remains—what about doing math? Math has a negative association in our culture and many Americans are uncomfortable and even fearful of math and numbers. But Bedtime Math is here to change all that.

In Bedtime Math 3, math and fun facts combine for one wacky and wild adventure! Now kids can discover the truth behind all their favorite things: marshmallows, Coca-Cola, astronaut ice cream, and more! These fun, mischief-making math problems aren’t just kid-friendly, but actually, kid-appealing. With over 100 math problems on a variety of topics, kids will find math isn’t just fun—it can be found everywhere! And with three different levels of challenge (Wee ones, Little kids, and Big kids), plus a Bonus question, there’s something for everyone. We can make numbers fun—and change the world—one Bedtime Math problem at a time.

Who Was Marie Curie? Who Was Marie Curie
by Megan Stine
Born in Warsaw, Poland, on November 7, 1867, Marie Curie was forbidden to attend the male-only University of Warsaw, so she enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris to study physics and mathematics. There she met a professor named Pierre Curie, and the two soon married, forming one of the most famous scientific partnerships in history. Together they discovered two elements and won a Nobel Prize in 1903. (Later Marie won another Nobel award for chemistry in 1911.)
