Absolutely fantastic!! I would highly recommend this book. The rhymes are fun making it easier to learn times tables while encouraging reading with your child. My child is thoroughly enjoying this book while having a giggle about what naughty Katie is doing, also remembering times tables easily.

My son has dyslexia and he loves the rhymes to help him remember. His best friend makes a game of it to see who can get the most correct answers, because I leave the answer blank for them to answer. A very innovative and entertaining method of teaching!

A different and clever approach to learning times tables. I will definitely be using this approach with my 5 year old .

This is another fun way to help children learn multiplication. It is important to read this out loud.

Full Text: Learn your times tables a fun way. Have been struggling with my 11 year old to learn her Times Tables. Never thought there could be a fun way. What a great book. Highly recommended.

This is wonderful way to learn the times tables. Katie and Misty provided some great rhymes on how to learn their times table. I will definitely use for my students.

I was provided with a copy of the book by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest and objective review.

My elder daughter even now at 15 struggles with her times tables. She simply is very verbal, creative, and almost completely right brained, rather than mathematical and analytical. I like these rhymes because they are helping her remember what seem to her to be mindless, unconnected tidbits of information. These rhymes give her a scaffold on which to organize and comprehend how these numbers are related. I really like that and wish I had had this back when she was struggling so hard in elementary school. We homeschool, and I believe in true mastery over pushing to keep up with the scope and sequence of institutional schools. So she literally stayed in one math book for almost three years until she could do it consistently. I think these rhymes might have sped that process up a bit. My only dislike (why four stars and not five) is that I would prefer to set positive role models before my children rather than negative ("naughty Katie").
