books by Stuart J. Murphy
If you are a parent, teacher, or tutor of children between the ages of three and ten and haven't read any books by Stuart J. Murphy, I suggest you look for some of his books the next time you are at the library. He has over sixty story books with math concepts embedded in them. At the end of each book there are suggestions on how to extend talking about the math concept from the book. My students enjoyed reading the books and I could see them as a great introduction or reinforcement of math lessons. At his books' website (www.mathstart.net) it tells the concepts covered in each book as well as some additional activities to help children understand and learn math concepts. I like the book Treasure Map. Some of my students really liked Less Than Zero.
