Times Tables Fun with Naughty Katie
by Lorraine Reed

Do you struggle to learn times tables? Learn your times tables using an inventive new method created by Lorraine Reed, which involves so much more than simply reciting figures! Join Naughty Katie and her younger sister Misty as they show you that maths can be fun. Author and mother Lorraine feels that not all children find mathematics interesting enough to stimulate their brain, but knows that children can find hearing and reading stories much more fun. With this in mind, she has written Times Tables Fun with Naughty Katie, which utilises a more interactive method of learning. In early 2016, the BBC announced a new scheme that will see every pupil in England being tested on their times tables before they leave primary school. By the age of 11, they will now be expected to know their tables all the way up to 12x12 and will be tested using a computer. These checks will be piloted to about 3,000 pupils in 80 primary schools in summer 2017, before being rolled out across the country later next year.

Throughout this book as you shall see,
Because 3 x 1 is 3.
The girls will teach you so much more!
Because 4 x 1 is 4.

In Lorraine’s new book, as well as learning the times tables up to 12x12, readers will follow the story of Katie, a very naughty little girl who likes nothing more than teasing her younger sister Misty and causing havoc! Being read as a bed-time story each night, children will enjoy Katie and Misty’s adventures whilst learning their time tables in a fun way, with the nightly repetition speeding up the learning process. Times Tables Fun with Naughty Katie will appeal to children and adults who struggle with traditional learning methods.

Absolutely fantastic!! I would highly recommend this book. The rhymes are fun making it easier to learn times tables while encouraging reading with your child. My child is thoroughly enjoying this book while having a giggle about what naughty Katie is doing, also remembering times tables easily.

My son has dyslexia and he loves the rhymes to help him remember. His best friend makes a game of it to see who can get the most correct answers, because I leave the answer blank for them to answer. A very innovative and entertaining method of teaching!

by Barbara J Power

A different and clever approach to learning times tables. I will definitely be using this approach with my 5 year old .

This is another fun way to help children learn multiplication. It is important to read this out loud.

Full Text: Learn your times tables a fun way. Have been struggling with my 11 year old to learn her Times Tables. Never thought there could be a fun way. What a great book. Highly recommended.

by Lisa Houston

This is wonderful way to learn the times tables. Katie and Misty provided some great rhymes on how to learn their times table. I will definitely use for my students.

I was provided with a copy of the book by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest and objective review.

4/5 stars

My elder daughter even now at 15 struggles with her times tables. She simply is very verbal, creative, and almost completely right brained, rather than mathematical and analytical. I like these rhymes because they are helping her remember what seem to her to be mindless, unconnected tidbits of information. These rhymes give her a scaffold on which to organize and comprehend how these numbers are related. I really like that and wish I had had this back when she was struggling so hard in elementary school. We homeschool, and I believe in true mastery over pushing to keep up with the scope and sequence of institutional schools. So she literally stayed in one math book for almost three years until she could do it consistently. I think these rhymes might have sped that process up a bit. My only dislike (why four stars and not five) is that I would prefer to set positive role models before my children rather than negative ("naughty Katie").
