What Kind of Book is Terrible Times Tables

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

This is a fascinating premise for a book… times tables set to rhymes to help with memory and familiarity. The cadence isn’t perfect and some of the rhymes definitely rely on grade school humor that children may find entertaining but parents less so, but the illustrations are cute and it serves its purpose… even if it’s one you may get sick of reading ad nauseum.
