“Math anxiety is real. This book teaches children self-advocacy and self-acceptance, while raising awareness for math teachers. What might seem like a fun game for some could be a “nightmare” for others. Every child who is afraid of numbers and every math teacher should read this book. It is so important to avoid creating math anxious children and parents; math teachers are on the front lines of defense in the war against math anxiety.” —Marizza Bailey, BASIS Scottsdale math teacher named by President Obama as a recipient of the 2016 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching

““In this touching story, the all-important lessons about being confident, accepting differences, sharing fears and learning about yourself are experienced by young Coco as she struggles to do math. As a finance executive, this strikes such a cord. It’s imperative in business to play to your strengths and rely on others to supplement your weaknesses so that you complement each other’s skills. And as a mom, I hope my young children will gain insight and confidence from reading this charming story.” —Katrina O’Connell, Chief Financial Officer, Old Navy

“A wonderful and heartwarming story about a girl who discovers that everyone learns in his or her own way and that’s what makes learning fun! It’s a true celebration of individual differences and demystifies the learning process for even the most hesitant of little mathematicians.” —Rebecca Barker Bridges, educational therapist and author of Meet Stanley: The Reading Dog
