Bedtime Math

Typical bedtime stories for children involve great adventures and the battle between good and evil. They pit heroes and heroines against a variety of foes and seemingly insurmountable setbacks. 

But author Laura Overlock thinks a little math before bed would also be awesome. She and her husband began using imaginative math stories - some might call them problems - and making them into stories for her children at bedtime. Her kids are not teens, but the Overlocks have written the stories for littles and for bigger kidlets. After all, reasons Overlock, since a kid will do almost anything to have another few minutes to stay awake, if you make math fun and tell a story, maybe they will even listen to it.
