MONDAY: Superhero School
Leonard is a kid superhero, so he gets to go to superhero school. But instead of learning to leap tall buildings in a single bound, they are learning... math! Fractions. Multiplication. Division. Math! Leonard starts to wonder if he really wants to be at superhero school after all, if all they are going to study is math. How will math lessons help in the real world?
Then, the ice zombies attack!
This was a cute book combining the fun of superheros with math concepts, showing kids that math matters, without being too heavy-handed with the message.
