Math and Literature and Math and Nonfiction series, by various authors, is an outstanding set of resources filled with ideas for integrating specific children’s picture books into math curriculum. Which stories are available and offer a chance to merge children’s love of story with mathematical ideas and concepts? Each of these books contains many examples of student work which clarify the points made by authors. The style in which scenarios are written is as if the reader is observing a class, like a fly on the wall. The classroom teachers writing the chapters report what happened in the conversations and interactions between teachers and students, what lessons they themselves learned, and how student learning was affected. There is not an over-abundance of heady analyses here, but a great deal of more immediately helpful and applicable insights and advice from master teachers in simple and conversational tone. These books also include reproducible masters, charts, and overviews of age level and content areas covered.
