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/
