IN MY OPINION
Twelve Weeks to Midnight Blue by Steve Searfoss is a great book to hand to kids to teach them about money, work ethic, and math. It’s relatable to the age group, too.
As Chance Sterling considers all aspects of starting up his pool cleaning business, he learns some important lessons—about work, relationships, and doing the right thing. Chance’s goal is to earn enough money to buy a bike, but some bumps in the road along the way make him question whether he’ll get there at times.
This book makes math interesting for middle grade students who may struggle with the subject (or even those who enjoy the subject). It would also make an excellent addition to any home school or home library.
