Read full description of the books:



I recently read One Grain Of Rice A Mathematical Folktale by Demi and my Goodreads friend Krista told me of two other versions of the same tale, including this one.

I loved this one as much as the other. I think I like the illustrations and story somewhat more, and the math graph at the end is almost as nifty as the one in the other book.

This story is about a girl who tricks the selfish leader into providing enough rice and land for the people of India. The girl knows what the Rajah does not: that doubling grains of rice (not that many times) will produce a very large number.

This story is great fun and very educational, and could spark an interest in numbers for kids who are normally adverse to them.

I'm tempted to give both these books 5 stars; I love them so much.
