This is one of my all-time favorite books, and I’ve had so much fun with this new edition — adding stories, writing make-your-own-problem prompts, sneaking a few teaching tips into the worked-out solutions, creating an almost-magical guide to helping kids reason their way through math problems.

I’ve put together a free 14-page printable (pdf) “Word Problems Sampler” to give you a taste of things to come, including three ready-to-use student workbook pages.

Check it out:

### Help Your Kids Learn Math the Creative Way

- Are you a parent trying to help your child learn math?
- Or a teacher looking for creative ideas for your classroom?
- Or a homeschooling parent hoping to enrich your student’s understanding?

Then you’ll love *Word Problems from Literature* and the *Word Problems Student Workbook* because they prepare your children for school success, providing the tools they need to solve tough math problems.

Feed your child’s mathematical imagination with puzzles inspired by classic books, from 2nd-grade stories based on *Mr. Popper’s Penguins* to prealgebra stumpers inspired by *The Lord of the Rings*.
