Picture Books: Math Goes Graphic!

There are a growing number of GREAT math books for kids aged pre-K to about 2nd or 3rd grade. These books gently and beautifully teach hard math concepts to young children. Here are some of the best I've found.

There is a series by Peter Patilla (and illustrated by Kirsty Asher or Brigitte McDonald) that are fabulous -- lots of fun mazes, unique games and wonderful puzzles to teach counting, patterns, shapes and magnitude. These are beautiful books! Think a combination of Mary Englebreit mixed with Anno and you'll know what to expect. These seem to be OOP (pooooooh!) but that means you can get used copies CHEAP! Enjoy!
