Sum of Our Favorite Numbers

 Making Math fun is half the battle!


Leslie and Jay Cady use juggling, humor, and a wacky fairytale to share many reasons why they like numbers. Kids will roll in the aisles as they delve into counting, addition, multiplication, division, and units of measurement. A  hilarious game of 20 questions rounds out the show.
