So, in honor of the shortest month of the year, I have decided to share some of my favorite math related books for the month of February.

Math lessons often include time for students to interact with manipulatives and practice the concepts covered. Incorporating other types of visual literacy into this content area can also help expand students’ understanding and add an element of fun.

1. Math in the Bath (and other fun places, too!) by Sara Atherly

2. Mouse Count by Ellen Stoll Walsh

3. Pizza Counting by Christina Dobson, with some delicious illustrations by Matthew Holmes

4. How Tall, How Short, How Far Away by David Adler

5. One Nation: America by the Numbers by Devin Scillian

6. Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni
