Awesome Book! 22 April 2010

GREAT, GREAT BOOK! My kid and I enjoyed reading this book so much. I love this series and we own every single one of them. I hope this was available when I was growing up, it would have made learning math so much easier and enjoyable. I never mentioned to my kid that it's an educational book and that I am feeding him math this early on. He just enjoyed the story and the challenge that this intrepid duo are faced with.

As an adult, I still managed to learn something! I learned that it's easier to give patterns a name so you can remember, like a, b, c, c, and then it repeats, a,b, c, c, etc. Maybe it't not to late to teach an old dog new tricks. The "Sir Cumference" series by the same author also helped me understand some concepts that I knew, but did not fully understand. I am so glad to know that when my kid tackles these concepts in school (which is happening earlier and earlier than I ever had this level of math) we will have a whole new depth of understanding!

Outstanding! 28 Nov. 2011
By Amazon Woman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books about patterns for this age group that I've come across. Where most "math" books seem to force the storyline to fit a "lesson" about patterns, this book melds the two in an effortlessly fun and engaging way. It presents patterns as directions which must be deciphered to find a lost city, giving meaning to a math topic which is critical, but too often presented in a dry, sterile fashion. Highly recommended.

Whimsical, educational adventure read. 10 Jun. 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Cindy Neuschwander's PATTERNS IN PERU: AN ADVENTURE IN PATTERNING tells of the Zills family, visiting Peru to study an ancient woven tunic that is connected to a mysterious lost city. Matt and Bini would love to find the Lost City, but they have their hands full when they're separated from their parents. Only an understanding of patterns and sequences can help them get back to their parents in this whimsical, educational adventure read.
Peru culture at its best 25 Feb. 2013

This book is high interest, kid friendly and hooks the reader from the very first page. It's a refreshing spin on the age old math pattern because it makes the child think of patterns as ways to solve real life problems
