“Learning maths is like learning a new language. To hear the beautiful stories in that language, you have to master the language a bit. If you can live with the burden at the start, mathematics will generously offer you all the beauties it keeps inside.”
This book does not aim in teaching kids maths. It tries to convince them to see how entertaining maths actually is! If they believe it makes fun, they will definitely discover the fun in it and enjoy numbers and shapes.
Mathematics is a highly abstract language and consists of numbers, operations and shapes. That’s perhaps why many of us have a hard time with it.

Many concepts that would take hours to explain on a blackboard are brought easily with personifications, metaphors and puns.
