TES review of Here Come the Numbers

Kyle D Evans’ wonderful little book, which we published in March 2019, has had a lovely review in the Times Educational Supplement.

“Like a mathematical version of The Simpsons, this maths picture book is full of sophisticated ideas, wrapped in a child-friendly package.

“Here Come the Numbers, by maths teacher, maths communicator and musical comedian Kyle Evans, is sweet, but not saccharine. It is rhyming, but still meaningful. In it, I recognise the tiny, beautiful seeds of the mathematics I know and love, not the empty fetishising of counting and repetition that seems to fill the days of every caregiver of young children. I recognise with relief there’s nothing that I would have to fudge or go back to adjust later.”
