A Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar introduces readers to a caterpillar as it curbs its hunger. The caterpillar then becomes a beautiful butterfly who is not so hungry. This book allows teachers to showcase days of the week and counting to students. I would use this book to help my students learn sequencing along with counting and addition. My students will put the events in order and they will tell how much food the caterpillar ate during the week.

Two of Everything
Two of Everything - Lily Toy Hong

Before reading this text, I was unfamiliar with the Chinese folktale. The story tells the tale of Mr. and Mrs. Haktak and their magic pot - a pot that will give them two of everything. This story is so clever and teaches young readers about modesty. I would incorporate this book into a writing center! I would allow students to write about what they might want to drop into the pot, or if they would want to use it all! This book could also be incorporated into math lessons to help students learn about doubles. One such activity calls for the usage of a mirror, so students can actually visualize what doubling is. This activity can be found here: https://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=3294

Let's Do Math!
Two of Everything - Lily Toy Hong

This book could be great way to introduce a different culture into the classroom, and also the concept of doubles for math. It has very large, simple, and fun illustrations and a creative story to follow along with. It seems to come to an abrupt ending to me, so I see a great writing opportunity for students to add more to the ending. I would incorporate this book into a math activity using examples such as these.  http://mathwire.blogspot.com/2010/04/two-of-everything.html

Learning Cents!
The Penny Pot (MathStart 3) - Stuart J. Murphy,Lynne Cravath

Another great counting book for children to learn money skills. This book also has activities in the back to help work on counting change. The setting is great for younger students and is relatable to something that they might actually experience in life. One fun math activity would be this example. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/165155511305014404/

Family Reunion!
Spaghetti and Meatballs for All! (Marilyn Burns Brainy Day Books) - Marilyn Burns,Debbie Tilley,Gordon Silveria

This book includes a large vocabulary index, and wonderful, bright, illustrations. It brings a real life scenario into teaching mathematics to upper elementary age students. The end of the book also explains the mathematics that go into the book and you can really break it down for the classroom. This book would be great for charting out step-by-step how much food needs to be made, and different ways the seating could be set up. One example of this can be found at the following link. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/46584177368188172/
