Join two friendly and funny robots, Beep and Boots, as they learn all about time and discover that math is everywhere they look.

Beep the robot would love nothing more than to have her own pet, like her friends do. One morning she gets a surprise delivery – a parcel containing circles, squares, triangles, and pentagons for her to make her own robot cat! Beep realizes that she can’t make a pet pal from flat, two-dimensional shapes so, with a flash of magic, the shapes become three-dimensional spheres, cubes, and pyramids. Join Beep as she tries different ways of putting shapes together to build her robot cat and make a best friend forever.

This fun and educational math book for children features:

- Lively illustrations and rhyming text bring the characters and math topics to life.
- The series covers shapes, time, measurements, division, and fractions – all essential learning for this age group.
- Illustrations are in a non-gendered color palette, making the traditionally male subject relatable for all genders.
- The storyline is relatable to young readers, encouraging them to look for math in their homes and environments, and seeing how, often without even knowing it, they are using math in their day to day lives.

Characterful illustrations and rhyming text bring Beep and Boots to life. Children aged 5–7 will love seeing the adventures the robot duo go on and will learn key mathematical concepts concerning time in a gentle, fun way, including telling the time and hours, minutes, and seconds. Questions at the end of the book reinforce learning and encourage kids to look at the math they can see in the world around them.

At DK, we believe in the power of discovery.
