New Sir Cumference & Viking Map Book for you

Homeschooling, Math No Comments

I have some good news…

Sir Cumference has a new book in its series & I wanted you to know.
The new book is Sir Cumference & The Viking Map.

Sir Cumference & The Viking Map

What’s it all about?

Xaxon Yellowbearyd was the fiercest Viking warrior of his time. Now a map to his hidden treasure lies in Radius’s and Per’s hands. Together the cousins must decode the strange numbered grid on the map-and figure out the secret of the Viking’s X and Y axes. As bungling bandits pursue them, Radius and Per use coordinate geometry in their quest for “treasure of the greatest measure”.

The Viking Map will be available in February, so I am taking pre-orders.  If you grab a copy in January, you can get 20% discount on Sir Cumference & The Viking Map, as well as any other Sir Cumference title.

Click here to grab Sir Cumference & The Viking Map

We will ship your order as soon as we get the new books in stock, probably mid-February

Fun Math for Older Elementary Kids

I found it…I actually found some math story books that your kids will LOVE!

And get this, while they love the story books we have for them, they will be learning math concepts (without knowing they are learning).

Isn’t that a great way to “inspire not require”?

I’m always on the lookout for ways to encourage a love of learning with my kids. Math Story Books were one terrific way I found to encourage learning math, especially with my non-math daughters.

Here’s a video “showing” you the math books your kids will love.

Make Math Fun With Sir Cumference

Curriculum Connection, Homeschooling, Living Books & Classics, Math, Reading 1 Comment

Sir Cumference Math series are a terrific way to teach children elementary math lessons. Bring elementary math and geometry alive as you read about Sir Cumference and his Lady Di of Ameter. Your children will actually remember the math lesson and geometry concepts.

When King Arthur and his knights get together, the table they have is so long that everyone has to shout to be heard. A rectangular table is too long and a triangular table is too pointy, but somehow they must sit down and discuss the shape of the future. Join a knight called Sir Cumference, his wife, Lady Di of Ameter, and their son Radius as they use different strategies to solve this quandary.


Can Sir Cumference and Lady Di of Ameter “measure up” to the challenge of building a better table?


Explore the castle, watch a tournament, and ride along with Sir Cumference as he searches for the shape of the future. Noisy knights, a clever carpenter, and a juggling jester all add to the fun.




Math Concepts:

  • Geometry
  • Circumference
  • Diameter
  • Area of a Rectangle
  • Parallelogram
  • Triangle
  • Circle

We have 4 more books in the Sir Cumference series.  Read about all of them here:
