Math is everywhere in our lives, not just textbooks. Reading math picture books or storybooks to your kids will help to show them the friendly approachable side of numbers and patterns. There are TONS of these kinds of books, but I’ll just show you a few of the ones we used in this video. You can find a lot of these in your library or Scholastic warehouse sales.
The books I reviewed in this video are:
The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure by Hans Magnus Enzensberger
Opt: An Illusionary Tale by Arline and Joseph Baum
Polar Bear Math: Learning about Fractions from Klondike and Snow by Ann Whitehead Nagda and Cindy Bickel
If You Made a Million by David M. Schwartz
Big Numbers and Pictures that Show Just How Big They Are by Edward Packard
Big Book of Time: A Magical Adventure through the Seconds, Seasons, and Light-years of the Universe by William Edmonds. This book is no longer in print, but I found a similar book here.
Incredible Comparisons by Russell Ash. I can’t seem to find this book online, so maybe it is out-of-print, but here is a similar book by Russell Ash.Tags: homeschooling, math curriculum review, mathematics, number devil, picture books
