Hold Me (Cyclone) (Volume 2) - Courtney Milan 
Hold Me (Cyclone) (Volume 2) - Courtney Milan

Courtney Milan is a hell of an overachiever. She isn't content to write charming romances in which, as in Austen, the primary barriers to love are the uncontrolled aspects of multifaceted personalities. Milan also strives to remind the reader of how many different kinds of love there are, and that loving thy neighbor is hard, but worthwhile. She is Dickensian in her examination of class, but so much broader in scope. But also fun. They flirt with math. How adorably geeky and STEMy is that?

If they weren't so much fun, I might be tempted to call them uplifting. They are, often, deeply moving, because her characters have sometimes horrible, albeit too believable, backstories. Her happy endings are hard-earned.

personal copy.

Chicka Chicka 123
Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3 - Bill Martin Jr.,Michael Sampson,Lois Ehlert


Pre K-2

Chicka Chicka 123 is about teaching children to count.  The numbers get higher and must climb to the top of an apple tree.  I would use this as a fun way to teach kids in lower grades how to count to 100.  I would love to have the kids make their own books about the number's trip to the top of the apple tree.

A Million Fish...More or Less
A Million Fish...More or Less - Patricia C. McKissack



A young boy goes fishing in Louisiana.  He learns to tell a story about a million huge fish that he caught.  He determines whether stories that he has heard were more or less.  I would love to use this in a math lesson including less than and more than.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - Dr. Seuss

This is a great book to touch on adjectives and verbs. It is filled with words such as hot, small, tiny, mad, sad, etc. It also touches on math. This is an educational yet interesting book. Also kids love Dr.Suess so incorporating him into the classroom is a great idea. It is leveled 180 L.

This Book is One in a Million!
If You Made a Million - David M. Schwartz,Steven Kellogg

I had this book when I was younger but lost it. After going to the thrift store and finding it again, I realized just how educational it was. I used to read it just because I thought it was a funny book. The book talks about money- money conversions, what you can buy with certain amounts of money, interest, loans, checks, saving v. spending, and general fun facts about money. The visuals help children learn and the pictures are well drawn and fun. If it could interest 2nd grade me, I feel like it could interest almost any kid. This is probably a book that I would keep in the math section in my classroom so that students can read it without any pressure to do so. I would also incorporate it into any lesson about money. I have been thinking about a money project idea for a long time and think that this book would go along great with it. I would have students create a store that "sells" products. Each student would have a role in the fake economy. It would be a hands on project that I believe kids would love but it would also teach them about money (which is crucial to being an adult) in a fun way that I hope would stick with them in the future. Every teacher needs this book! You can even incorporate it in younger grades by just reading the first few pages that talk about pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars.
