Matt, Bibi, and their dog Riley crawled through the tiny opening first. FWUMP! A secret door suddenly closed behind them . . .
The Zills family is summoned to Egypt to help find the hidden burial chamber of an ancient pharaoh. But when Matt and Bibi get trapped in the pharaoh’s pyramid, they stumble upon an even bigger mystery. With only each other, their dog Riley, and the geometric hieroglyphics on the walls to help them, the twins must use their math skills to locate the burial chamber—and the way out. Luckily, Matt and Bibi know their stuff when it comes to geometric solids, and so will the readers of this adventure in math!

At this point for my girls I know I am a bit ahead of the game, but I cannot help getting excited about education books for them. While researching ideas in The Well Trained Mind and other catalogs I came across the Sir Cumference Series (Sir Cumference Pack) by Cindy Neuschwander. While I have not yet read those I am delighted to start with Mummy Math: An Adventure in Geometry. What a fun adventure! This shore but education story is great for kids both before and after they have been introduced to geometry. Stories like this make math fun. Using a great font this book will be an excellent early reader once my girls reach that level and until then I enjoy reading it to my toddler with rapt attention.
