Let’s Play Math blog > Math with Living Books > Books for Parents and Other Teachers

A bookshelf full of teaching tips and math activities for your family, classroom, or math club.

Within each subcategory, books are listed alphabetically by author.

If you click on a book cover, the links take you to Amazon.com, where you can read reviews and other details (and where I earn a few cents of affiliate commission if you actually buy the book), but most of these books should be available through your public library. Ask a librarian to find you a copy — they love to help!
