Math in literature? Yes, indeed! Just as narratives and colorful illustrations can help children learn about other aspects of their worlds, so too can picture books be useful in teaching basic mathematical concepts. This book list contains many titles that family literacy educators may find helpful for creaing family math activities.

The books, which should be available at public libraries, are divided into 10 broad categories: addition, counting, estimating, fractions, geometry, graphing, measurement, money, multiplication and division, and number sense. Please let us know how the books work in your programs. Also, please share other titles that belong on the list. Happy reading!
