Books

There are so many! Click here to see a list of all the math picture books I’ve reviewed so far. Here are my two favorite ones:

One Grain of Rice

Exotic, beautiful, and instructive, this “mathematical folktale” by author-illustrator Demi emerged from her love of India. This retelling of the classing “doubling” story is about Rani, a clever girl who outsmarts a very selfish raja and saves her village. When offered a reward for a good deed, she asks only for one grain of rice, doubled each day for 30 days.
