Praise for Project Popcorn:
Project Popcorn has punch, appeal, and practical applicability for students who are learning to love math and reading. Cheery color illustrations … are inclusive, showing children of different skin colors, with different abilities (one girl in a wheelchair assists with sales), and different backgrounds. Highly recommended.”—Children’s Bookwatch

“The Community Champions are a varied cast of kids—an unobtrusive mix of genders, races, and one who uses a wheelchair—who do good works around town. The artwork … and the text feel right: their teacher is proud of their spirit, and the kids get a warm feeling from doing something selfless and meaningful. Overall this is both an effective celebration of abilities and needs and a concise and accessible use of business math.”—Kirkus

“One of only a few mathematical stories in the market with an explicit focus on mean, median, mode and range. Through the story, William and Lizzie demonstrate how the different types of average and range could be meaningfully applied in different situations to help them maximize their popcorn sale. The illustrations by Shirley Ng-Benitez are charming with characters representing different ethnicities and genders. All in all, we highly recommend Project Popcorn.”—Maths Through Stories

“Primary teachers looking for supplemental material to use with math will appreciate this easy reader series. The series includes stories with clever insertions of math into daily life. Classroom teachers and librarians will want this enrichment series in their libraries.”—School Library Connection for Project Popcorn, A Fishy Mystery, Let’s Go, Snow!, and Otto and the New Girl
