An interesting concept, but it hurts my brain.

Gr 2–6—It's madness, it's brilliant, it's funny—there is no better way to learn math than to give the job of teaching it
to mammoths and shrews. This compendium of demonstrations makes math seem effortless or at least worth
puzzling over, and everyone will have fun trying.

I love this "How It Works" series by Macaulay. A perfect level of detail for K-2.

You can't always believe a blurb, but I'm gonna say Macaulay has totally earned the "master explainer" title. I'm very impressed by his ability to take a complicated subject and break it down into understandable parts for young readers. The illustrations are great, too. I highly recommend this whole series!
