The author helps teachers to recognize the mathematical learning that occurs during play, to develop strategies for mathematizing that play, and to design formal lessons that make connections between mathematics and : $   Connecting math to literature can boost confidence for children who love books but are wary of math. And students who already love math can learn to appreciate stories in an entirely new way. One book that I’ve read to many first and second graders, always to the delight of the children, is One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab by April Pulley Sayre.
