Great book using a modified version of Sir Author and the Round Table to introduce math concepts to children in a fun and entertaining way.
Great introduction to math concepts: shapes/parallelograms, circumference, radius, etc... This book may help reinforce these new concepts by being relatable in the story

I wish we'd learned mathematics with help from this series!  Effective, and fun too.  And the art is appropriately lively & clear as well. ( )

Sir Cumference is having trouble fitting all of his knights at the table for dinner. He tries all different kinds of shapes, but his best minds eventually figure out the very best shape for the job, and the rest is history! ( )

Clever, enjoyable, humorous, and it taught my son about Diameter, Radius, and Circumference better than weeks of instruction in public school on the topic. ( )

• This math adventure applies to higher elementary geometry, circumference, radius, and more. King Arthur is upset about all having to yell at his meetings because of the shape of the table. Sir Cumference and his family takes it upon themselves to create a table that makes it easy for all to take part in conversation with the king. They tried a square table, but it didn’t work. They tried a rhombus (parallelogram), but it didn’t work. They tried many shapes, but none were satisfied until Radius had the idea of using a round table.
