Book Review: A Grain of Rice by Helena Clare Pittman

A Grain of RiceA Grain of Rice by Helena Clare Pittman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book is such a simple variation on the old grains on a chessboard example of exponential growth. The story is charming, but not exceptional. It is the almost familiar story of a peasant who wishes to marry the princess and uses his brain to achieve his goal.

I’d recommend it to anyone with bright young children or grandchildren to read it to. And you are bound to enjoy it yourself too.
