Making Math Fun! With Books

Math – the ever talked about, spreads fear in the hearts of students and homeschool parents alike, subject. While I am a firm believer in a solid math base, and I choose to use a curriculum for our math base, there are a ton of other hands on, fun ways to introduce, learn, and practice math concepts. How about Making Math Fun With Books?

Making Math Fun!  With Books from Starts At Eight

I have compiled a list of books to help make math fun. They include picture books, activity books, hands on learning fun, and more! While I have put them in subsequent age ranges, you will find that many can go up or down depending on your child. Be sure to check them out and decide for yourself if they are a good fit for your child.
