Book review: Short Mysteries You Solve with Math!=Misterios cortos que resuelves con matemáticas!, by Eric and Natalie Yoder

Yoder, Eric and Natalie Yoder. Short Mysteries You Solve with Math!=Misterios cortos que resuelves con matemáticas! (One Minute Mysteries series) Science, Naturally!, 2017. $12.95. ISBN 9781938492228. 224 pages. Includes Glossary, Index, and Conversion Table.  Ages 10-14. P6 Q8

Bilingual (English/Spanish) book with vignettes of realistic things that could happen and some silly stories provoke thoughts to explain the mystery. Using higher level thinking skills the reader can predict the explanation and then check the following pages to learn the answer and the mathematical explanation.

Verdict: It is great for a bilingual classroom as a transition read aloud or daily discussion.  Also for the Talented And Gifted (TAG) students or students that need additional challenges, it would be an engaging book to provide an extension to their thinking.
