We found a Reading Rainbow dvd from the library with that book in it. I really enjoyed it, but it's not that much different than reading, I guess:unsure: But there is a chef on the show that makes a veggie lasagna and talks about his reading issues. Also, there is a bonus of ' Saturday Sancocho' which is a cute story of how a grandma doesn't have the ingredients to make the weekly stew but shows how she can turn 12 eggs into all the ingred. she needs. Good for lessons on ingenuity.

The title, other than RR is 'Math is Everywhere'. It also has 'How much is a million?'.

I just checked to see if that is at our library, there is something that matches the title. Do you have authors on those videos or book that you were talking about. Thanks for the tip.
