Its the Story that Counts: More Childrens Books for Mathematical Learning, K-6 by David Whitin, Sandra Wilde

A good resource for teachers, it will also intrigue some parents and provide selection ideas for librarians and school media specialists. - Booklist Stories are natural invitations for learners to explore the mathematics of their own lives and the lives of others. With all their rich, supportive details, they present powerful opportunities for students to think mathematically. In this follow-up to their enormously popular Read Any Good Math Lately? David Whitin and Sandra Wilde continue to explore the importance of childrens literature in the teaching and learning of mathematics. They show how books help portray mathematics as it really is: a tool for making sense of our world. Using a wealth of books and frequent samples of childrens work, Whitin and Wilde highlight the voices of children and teachers who use mathematically oriented childrens books. They explain ways books have been used to explore mathematical concepts, the importance of childrens spontaneous reactions, and the role of mathematical conversation. You also hear from two authors who create these books, how their ideas originated and what they were trying to accomplish. The second part of Its the Story That Counts focuses on the books themselves, exploring multicultural themes and images in books, books on the number system, statistics, and probability, and books for adults. The final chapter presents a series of mini-essays on the best of new books for young readers, culminating in a list of over three hundred new books arranged by category. Throughout Its the Story That Counts, you gain a greater understanding of the rich potential childrens literature offers for mathematical investigations. Anyone interested in restoring the story to the world of mathematics will value what Whitin and Wilde have to say.
