Learn to count with candy

When I was a kid, my mother used to quiz me with math problems that I had to answer out loud (she was a Tiger Mother before the phenomenon existed). I earned an M&M for every one that I got right.

Now there’s a new board book out that’s got another way to teach kids math: Candy 1-20. I received a free copy from the publisher to peek through.

The book is charming in its simplicity. It depicts the numbers 1 through 20, created with a variety of candy treats, from M&Ms to gummi bears.

It’s a cute learning tool for any budding candy lover. And who knows – maybe you could trick your kids into thinking candy is for learning numbers, not getting sugar high!
