Here is a list of some books that teachers/parents/math enthusiasts have shared with me via social media and/or email that they enjoy and think you should check out.
Measuring Penny by Loreen Leedy
Math Hacks: Cool Tips + Less Stress = Better Marks (Amazon.ca) by Vanessa Vakharia (AKA The Math Guru) explores basic math concepts for grades 3-6 (ages 8-12). “The book shows you how to do math in a super fun way with colorful illustrations and teaches you anti-math anxiety strategies. When you feel like math is super hard or get nervous doing math, you can look to this book to tell you how to realize that EVERYONE is a math person by using some simple mindfulness tips and tricks!”
