Author Biography

San Jose transplant by way of San Diego. Test Anxiety gripped me at a young age, but when I saw this anxiety in my daughter Maddy, I felt I had to write about it. This was how Super Max and the Math Menace was created. This book is about test anxiety, but the feeling expands beyond Math. Anytime we are showing our skills, we are being tested, and that can cause anxiety. My hope for this book is chihldren, parents, and educators will use it to learn coping skills (which are included in the back pages) to overcome anxiety. Thanks for reading!

In Super Max and the Math Menace by Heather E. Robyn, it's just another Friday. Max wakes up and heads to school but is plagued by an uneasy feeling. She's waiting for something to happen but it seems like any other normal day. Spelling, lunch, and recess go by without a hitch but when they get back, it's time for math. Surprise! It's time for a pop quiz. Max knew her hunch was right. All the students are now worried and feel unprepared. Max has to do something. Luckily, Super Max is nearby and ready to help!

Super Max and the Math Menace is a great children's educational picture book. The book is very engaging and colorful. Each page is filled with bright illustrations and rhymes. There are not many words on each page which is great for younger children. It allows them to focus on the story a bit at a time and would be a great book for them to read with parents. I truly enjoyed this book and loved how the author tries to get kids to enjoy school and math in particular. The book shows kids that you can do anything as long as you believe in yourself. Additionally, in the end, Heather E. Robyn even provides a list of testing anxiety tips and tricks to look over. For kids in elementary school, this would be great for a parent to peruse and see what might be useful for their own child.
