Math Book Review in sync with Math Mentor Text

It has been a while since I have given a book review so I had my book all ready and then I happen to notice that Collaboration Cuties is having her Math Mentor Text. : )
Today's book is  Fun with Roman Numerals by David A. Adler

According to Amazon the book is for 7 and up.  I think that some 7-year-olds might get it, but I think it might still be hard.  The author did a good job making Roman numerals understandable.  I actually learned a few things!  I didn't know they had a way to make large numbers by putting a line over it or even an open box over the number symbol...

The illustrations are fun and sometime comical.  I think that kids who want to know how roman numerals work will easily pick it up after reading this book.  I feel it may be a bit long for a read aloud, but it could easily be broken up between a couple of days, or even a week.

I know I was intrigued with Roman numerals at about 9 or 10 and I wish I would have had this book back then : )

    1. It doesn't go into that too much, but it does a good job of showing how to figure out those letters! : )
