The Math by the Book Series

Stories create a space where students can explore their mathematical thinking and understanding in unique ways. Children's literature offers memorable opportunities to discuss mathematical ideas and connect those ideas to meaningful contexts. The Math by the Book series is dedicated to connecting literacy to math and teaching mathematics strategically through literature. Real learning comes from authentically and purposefully linking a story to important mathematical concepts.
