As a child were you ever scared of mathematics problems? Many kids are still dreading about it. But does the poor subject deserve such fear when it is actually fun? The book **Let’s do it together** can help you.

Do you know maths helps make sense of the world around us? How much? How many? How far? How small?

Strengthening the basic of
mathematics is much needed and an early start would be appreciated. How can you
help the kids then? Solution – **Storytelling**.

Yes, you read it right. Use storytelling for problem-solving. Make a story, involve the kid and solve a mathematical question. Still clueless?

** Let’s do it together by Lubaina Bandukwala and Vineeta Kanoria**, and illustrated by Zainab Tambawalla has maths stories to solve.

**Blurp**:

How many mangoes are needed to make a jar of pickle?

How many toes does the monster under the bed have?

How many days till new moon?

Let’s do this together is filled with stories that cleverly weave everyday maths problems into the narrative so children can easily solve them with the help of a parent, teacher or friend.

As they start with sums that are *easy-peasy*,
move to *mostly easy* and then to ones that are *not that easy. *The
book helps them build their self-confidence and number proficiency.

**Let’s do it together – Book Review:**

The book focuses on learning through storytelling. An adult can narrate the story. Beside bringing solutions together with the child.

The book, Let’s do it together, is skillfully curated with an increasing difficulty level. There are stories that would catch the young reader’s attention instantly. The illustrations complement the stories. The pages with nature-inspired illustrations fetch out on nature’s mathematical patterns. Like a 5-pointed star in apple core or spirals found in seashells.

What a fun way of learning! The child is eager to solve the ending of each story and actually work on a sum! Enhance the child’s reasoning skill and problem-solving attitude.

Appropriate for 5-year olds the book is highly recommended to encourage expertise on maths. Bonus, bond with the child as you introduce mental mathematics too.

Looks like a fun read for kids. My knowledge on kids books is zero. Now I can suggest this to my mommy friends.

Ways that parenting Penguin taught me, I do have some more children’s book coming up. 😀 Thanks for reading Sanjota

Maths is fun when introduced in fun ways. Hope your kid takes it from you, Urvashi

my son loves math, this looks really interesting, will grab it for sure soon for agamveer.

Good to hear that Princy.

Wish I had a book like this when I was studying math 😀

This was my thoughts when I started reading this one

How cool!! In my childhood my uncle said to me this once, that maths is fun!! Although it never seemed to me like that, not even now when I am doing maths everyday, still.. yet, a really interesting book!!

I was not keen on the subject until I got a good teacher who made his ways with stories. Thanks for sharing your story Swarnali

Haha, same here.. for all my school days, I just hated maths..how can be mathematics a cool subject just like storytelling?? I really wonder, but you knw Pragnya, I think we lacked such good teacgers in ur childhood who could teach us maths with lots of fun.. the fear of maths was deeply rooted inside us, that’s why we always feared and hated this subject.. I would also love to share some articles on this topic, this is really interesting!!

Looks like an interesting one… My kids have always loved reading books which have activities inbuilt in them….

Sounds like a cool book! Thanks for the review.

Thank you

Looks like an interesting book. Thanks for the review. Might pick this one.

That’s great. Do tell me if your kid(s) like it 🙂
