Mice Mischief by Caroline Stills

Ten colorful and acrobatic circus mice demonstrate the different ways that the numbers from one to nine can add up to ten.

Sorting Through Spring by Lizann Flatt

What if animals and plants knew math, just like us? Would flowers bloom in patterns? Would raindrops fall in rhythm? Would birds balance evenly on branches? In Sorting through Spring, the second title in the Math in Nature series, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of patterning, sorting, data management, and probability.

This interactive, poetic, and artful picture-book series is a non-intimidating and enticing way to introduce math to kids—they will laugh, use their imaginations, and learn through activities inspired by the books.

The boy who loved math: The improbable life of Paul Erdos by Deborah Heiligman

Most people think of mathematicians as solitary, working away in isolation. But that wasn't what Paul Erdos did. At the age of four, he could ask you when you were born and then calculate the number of seconds you had been alive. But he didn't learn to butter his own toast until he turned 20. Instead, he traveled around the world, collaborating on an astonishing number of projects and changing the way people everywhere thought about math.

Beanstalk: The measure of a giant by Ann McCullam

Jack is a young boy who decides to climb an incredibly tall beanstalk growing in his yard. When he gets to the top, he meets another boy, only this one is a giant! The giant is named Ray, and he is quite lonely. Jack decides to befriend him, but due to their huge size difference, the boys must use their math skills to figure out how to adjust games like checkers and hoops so that they both can play.

This fun tale of friendship is filled with colorful illustrations and puts a playful spin on numbers and size.

Lady Di of Ameter decides to throw King Arthur a birthday bash. But things turn into a royal mess when the whole kingdom shows up! Using the concept of place value, Sir Cumference shows Lady Di that the best way to figure out the number of guests is to group people into tens, hundreds, and ultimately thousands. Will his trick help her get things back on track?

Why Pi? Johnny Ball

Algebra, geometry, and physics didn't just happen overnight. It took centuries of discovery and invention to develop systems by which humans could measure every aspect of their world—and unravel the secrets of the entire universe.

The ancient Mayans could calculate days, months, and years by watching the sun, moon, and stars. The Egyptians were able to build massive pyramids by mastering right angles. Phoenician sailors figured out the earth was round thousands of years before Columbus was born. The Romans used their measuring skills to build perfectly straight roads and high-functioning aqueducts.

Discover how they did it, and learn all about the contributions of such great minds of math and science as:


  • Pythagoras
  • Galileo
  • Copernicus
  • Newton

and so many more.

Then journey to the modern world of sound and light and energy and pressure.

The compelling images in this book bring even the trickiest concepts to vivid life, and the perky text makes every chapter a reading delight. Included games, puzzles, and brainteasers add to the interactive fun.
