You could win a Math book!!

Sterling Publishing just sent me one of the coolest math books I've seen in awhile.

Click on the image to go to Sterling Publishing


David Carter's 100 is written, illustrated and engineered by David Carter.

Here's what's really neat about this book:  On each page there's a layer of flaps that lift up, each revealing a different picture as you count up to 100. There are layers and layers and layers of them! Each page has 5 flaps and each spread has 10.

When I showed it to my Grade 1s they were repeatedly calling out, "Oh wow!" and then they started joining in on the refrain "Now you've counted to 5 (10, 15, etc.)". They were really into it!


This is what the first page looks like.



And here it is with the flaps lifted up.

This beautiful and cleverly designed board book moves through a variety of landscapes, from the ocean, to the city, the farm, the forest, prehistoric times and finally ends up in a classroom full of books!

My class is only partway through the book because there is so much to look at that we decided to read just a bit each day.  I've been showing it to them on the smart board using my document camera to ensure that everyone has a really good view.

I like that it's segmented into 5s and 10s, too, because then you can also use it to skip count. 

But this book isn't only for math. All the gorgeous, realistic drawings lend themselves to a discussion about settings, while the text can be used as a model for descriptive writing. I'll definitely be using this book as part of my mini-writing lessons.

David Carter's 100 would make a fabulous gift for a preschooler, kindergartener or a first grade child still learning to count to 100.  Actually, most of my class CAN count to 100, and they're still enthralled with this book. 

Marielle, from Sterling Publishing, told me that I could have a giveaway.  So enter below and maybe you could be the lucky person to win this fabulous book!
