What My Kid is Reading- Numbed! by David Lubar

Written by David Lubar
Age range: unknown (guess: 7-11)
Released August 1, 2014

This book is from your school's Media Center. Why did you choose the book?
It was suggested by the librarian to my class.

What made it sound appealing?
The fact that someone is suddenly unable to use math and numbers. It would be interesting to see what it's like to not be able to tell time, count, everything having to do with numbers.

Tell me more about the book
Two kids get numbers erased from their brain and they have to get them back because they are about to have a math test. If the whole class gets a good average grade they'll get an ice cream party.

What's the time span of the book?
About two days. And you get to see what it's like at home and at school.

How'd you like it?
It wasn't amazing but it was good. I thought it would be more about what it's like without math and numbers but it was more about them getting it back. The author didn't show much about the consequences of no numbers.

But there was something really good about the book- all the chapters, instead of regular numbers, they're math equations.

Was part of the purpose of the book to learn math?

Did you learn anything new math-wise?

Any illustrations?

Was that okay?

Did the cover make you want to read the book?
The cover was definitely odd- it stood out because it was weird.

Would you read another book by the same author?
Maybe. Depends on the book. I wasn't too much of a fan of this book.

How would you rate this book?
3 stars (out of 5)

Thanks Leo!
