    This children's book helps children in grades 2-5 see the connections between various polygons and a circle. The properties of each polygon are used in the story. Mathematically it is sound and the author does explain the material in a very nice child-friendly manner. Adults will enjoy the plethora of puns. As a high school math teacher, I do use this book to both reinforce the properties and to show students a good example of a math book for children (and then I assign them the project to make their own story book on a math topic). My only complaint is the colors in the illustrations is a bit too wild -- tone down some of the contrasts would help the appearance.

    This is another excellent book to use in a math class as a supplemental reference when teaching geometry, specifically circles. The story is about King Arthur and his court who encounter problems when they have to yell at each other across the rectangular table in order to communicate. King Arthur calls in knight Sir Cumference and maiden Lady Di of Ameter to solve the problem. They finally come upon a solution with a round table. The book is a great teaching tool for students to learn about circumference, radius, and diameter. The author mixes historical fact with fiction. The students enjoy the pictures that accompany the story.

    •Sir Cumference and the First Round Table is one of the most interesting introductions to math concepts I've seen. King Arthur and his knights are planning for battle with their neighbors, known as the Circumscribers. Unfortunately, King Arthur and the knights are dissatisfied with the table they must sit at. It is up to Sir Cumference, his wife Lady Di of Ameter, and their son Radius to figure out which shape is the perfect shape for the table. This book has easy-to-understand illustrations of geometric shapes as well as clear definitions for the diameter, radius, and circumference of a circle. This book is lots of fun, especially if you like math and puns! I also think the story of King Arthur and his knights surrounds the math in a way that makes the math more palatable to reluctant math students. I could definitely see reading this book to upper elementary or perhaps middle school students who are still working to master the circumference, diameter, and radius of a circle.

    Genre: FantasyLevel: Intermediate 4-6 This book is a good example of fantasy because it is set in medieval times and a knight is sent on a mission and uses geometry terms to help him. This is a good book to use for geometry and circumference, to help give a visual understanding.

    This is good example of fantasy because it includes elements like knights, castles, and King Arthur's court. It is also a good example of an informational text because it gives accurate information about the different measurements of circles.Grade Level: Intermediate

    Great addition to teaching about circumference, radius, and diameter. Again love Sir Cumference and Lady Di! So clever!

    Genre: Historical fiction/Informational Age Appropriateness: Primary/IntermediateReview: This book is a good example of historical fiction because the imaginative tale of the past reflects historic facts in the text. In the book, the knights have a meeting but are unable to solve any matters because they sit at such a long table where everyone has to shout to be heard. Sir Cumference and Lady Di of Ameter are challenged to find a solution. Readers explore the castle, watch a tournament, and ride along with Sir Cumference as he searches for the shape of the future. In the end, Sir Cumference, Lady Di, and their son, Radius find the answer. This is also a good example of an informational book because the pages include descriptions and visuals on geometric shapes and terms. Media: This book is a good example of ink and wash. The artwork is lined with the ink and filled and embellished with watercolors. The colors are vibrant and allow readers to connect with the text on a deeper level. Ink and wash has clean lines and offers solid texture. Characterization: Lady Di is a round character because she encounters a conflict with the table and commits herself to finding a solution. She works with her husband and son to help the King. Readers are able to connect and relate to Lady Di as she tackles the challenge.

    This story is a great example of a powerful theme. The author chose to go for the renaissance theme with knights and royalty. They slip in great math concepts within the story, while still maintaining a fantasy feel to the book.
