Book Overview

Wilson Williams worries about passing his times-table tests

Wilson has a hard time with math, especially with Mrs. Porter's timed multiplication tests. If only he were as quick as Laura Vicks, the smartest kid in third grade, or as quick as his brother, Kipper -- a kindergartner. Wilson's mother and father try to help, but Wilson doesn't appreciate having to do practice tests on a play date. Fortunately, his friend Josh Hernandez...

Adorable story just right for my little guy!

My 8 year old was having a hard time with his 3rd grade multiplication tables when this title caught my eye. How appropriate was this book! Even had he not been in a similar predicament as the books' main character, my son would giggled just as much! A tale well written and close to home, it was a great book for us to read together. I especially recommend it for those reluctant readers, as it's a fairly easy read without too many challenging words.


I recommend this book for kids that are having trouble in math,because in the book there are some multiplication rymes,and,patterns that will help kids with there times tables.

Help for struggling math students

This title is a terrific book share or read aloud with students from 3rd and 4th grades (some 2nd graders) as they are struggling with learning the more difficult times tables. Currently having a groups of 3rd grade readers, and a granddaughter, who are trying to learning them now, they relate well to the character who agonizes over the nine times tables, among others. He is rescued by a classmate who shares some practical tips to help him master the operation. It's a humorous look at a school problem that so many students experience!

Third Grade Class Review

This book is so cool! We like the way it talks about math. The main character is Wilson. It takes place mostly in a school. Wilson is a third grader, like us. He has until March 16th to pass all of the multiplication tests through the twelves. He is having a hard time learning them. At the beginning of the book, he has only passed the threes. Read this book to find out if he learns the times tables in time to earn an ice cream cone.

The agony of memorizing multiplication tables!

Remember grade school when your teacher made you memorize the multiplication tables? Remember how hard it was to keep them straight long enough to pass off each set? Remember how much you wanted to earn the ice cream reward once you learned them all? Remember how everyone learned them faster than you? Wilson Williams knows exactly how you felt. He's stuck in the middle of multiplication and everyone in his class-Heck, even his little brother!--is doing better than he is. Wilson just knows he will be the last to finish. That's not his only worry. Wilson wants a pet, but the closest he will ever get is being able to take home the class hamster, Squiggles. Whether it's been years or days since you learned how to multiply or taught your child to do so, you'll suffer right along with Wilson. Be sure to treat yourself to an ice cream when you finish reading his delightful story.
