This page lists fun, clever books on math for kids. Math can be challenging, so when the usual explanations and strategies don't work, what's a teacher to do? Use math picture books! A funny and/or interesting story pulls the kids in, and then the different approach (vs. traditional math direct instruction) means even the frustrated kids are more receptive to learning math. Children who claim to not like math can find an engaging, 'friendly' entry into the subject via clever math picture books.
Math children's books are also great for showing math is all around us! Teaching real world applications of math is a vital part of math education, but doing so in a meaningful way can take A LOT of time. That's why we love math books for kids. Let them tell the math story, show the applications, make the math come alive!

Clever, funny, well-illustrated, interesting math kids books can make teaching real world math so
much easier for teachers and more fun for kids.
Truthfully, we work on this section of the website more than any other section because we know how important differentiating math lessons can be. Some kids really struggle with thinking mathematically and need the material presented in a number of different ways. Math story books and picture books do this beautifully! Adding a few math picture books might seem like a 'nice extra' to your math lessons, but chances are there are a few students for whom this extra little step will make ALL the difference in the world.
