What's on my face?? No, I didn't join the circus...but enough of the clowning around...(I'll stop now. ๐Ÿ˜‚) Happy #RedNoseDay! Today, we wear red noses in support of @comicrelief who is working to end child poverty. Check them out and @rednoseday to see how you can help! (More in my Instastories, too.)

๐Ÿ˜Ž Watch me hit "SEND." ๐Ÿ˜Ž Last night I turned in the first draft of my next @mckellarmath book, on multiplication & division! Yippee!! ๐ŸŽ‰
It took me a year and a half (I do all the writing myself), and it's slated for a 2020 release. Believe it or not, this is just the first step in the process - next, I'll get editor notes, I'll do rewrites, then throughout 2019 I'll be approving/adjusting illustrations & design - these books take a lot of work to get right, but to me, it's *more* than worth it: I'm on a mission to make (even Common Core math!) actually & truly FUN and easy for kids & parents, especially now that math looks so different from how we learned it! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

By the way, this multiplication & division book is a *sequel* to the addition & subtraction book that comes out next month: "Do Not Open This Math Book." ๐Ÿ˜‰ Check out mckellarmath.com for the full lineup. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Now that I've turned in this draft, I can focus on my other career in so blessed to have: my next @hallmarkchannel movie starts shooting in less than a week. ๐ŸŽฌ๐Ÿค— Thank you all for being such an important part of my @hallmarkchannel family AND @mckellarmath family! โค

Throwback to when I presented the award for Best Rap Song 3 years ago at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. This year I'll be home with my family as I get ready to leave for my next @hallmarkchannel movie โค, but it's always a great show so my TV will just have to do! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy 40th birthday to my gorgeous friend (inside & out!) @brookemahan! I'm so glad I got to help you celebrate last night. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Welcome to the best decade EVER. #thisis40 โค

Had so much fun tonight at @nobumalibu but didn't get a chance to take many pics (check my instastories for a taste of it!), so before I dismantle all this, here's a quick shout-out to handkerchief tops, white jeans, and BLUE SUEDE SHOES. .

#TBT to this Wonder Years scene where Fred & I ate pretzels and did homework together. ๐Ÿ˜ What I remember most about this scene (besides the stale pretzels! ๐Ÿ˜œ) is that for whatever reason, the writers hadn't gotten the script ready in time, so we only received pages for this scene and we had to shoot it without really knowing what else was going on in the episode! ๐Ÿ™„

I'm thinking maybe we were having a Yanny vs. Laurel debate... ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

Still dreaming of my magical weekend in Napa...! ๐Ÿ˜ It was a wonderful combination of happy-chaos-filled family time, punctuated with spa treatments and moments of "reflection" like these...๐Ÿ˜Ž

Guys! I'm super proud of my upcoming, "Do Not Open This Math Book"!! It's for ages 6-8 and covers Addition & Subtraction in a super fun way, with cartoons and stories. So many parents have told me they struggle with helping their 1st and 2nd graders with their math homework because it looks so different now, and I am here to help! (There's even a Translation Guide for parents in the back. ๐Ÿ˜Š) .
.

And THANK YOU to @sljournal for the wonderful review this week, highlighting its usefulness to both students and caregivers, and praising the funny cartoons, too! ๐Ÿ™ That is what I want more than anything - for people to find this book a truly helpful lifesaver among the often unfamiliar methods taught nowadays, and to provide a fun atmosphere for parents and children to make friends with math. Mr. Mouse and I are at your service! ๐Ÿ˜‰
