"This series, with titles at different levels, takes new and somewhat difficult math concepts and simplifies them for children. The books relate math topics to the real world so that they are understandable; photographs are used for each concept. “Did you know?” sections add additional fun facts to the story. Although each book relates to a different area of mathematics, they are all relevant to the target audience and their interests. Throughout the series, science, social studies, athletics, and mathematics are tied together. These stories are a fun way to teach mathematics to young children. Recommended.

If looking for a one-stop shop, Norwood's ""iMath"" provides a comprehensive set of CCSS-friendly resources that offer multiple strategies to problem solving. The mix of language arts and math will appeal to teachers.

This subset is a busy mix of language arts and math. The texts have short sentences, and most of the titles engage readers with a story. Each book begins with “iMath Ideas,” which introduces a concept, poses a math problem, and provides strategies for getting the answer, encouraging students to evaluate which method is strongest. Every volume ends by reiterating the same “iMath Ideas.” Additional sections include a “Discover Activity” and an informational section that connects the math discussion to science, history, or art. Each book ends with a “What Comes Next” page that gives ideas for expanding on the concepts presented and an “Additional Notes” section that provides answers to the various problems. Photos, charts, illustrations, and diagrams decorate the pages. At times, there is so much going on that the math might become lost for this young audience. For example, it seems almost random that “ligers” and “tigons” are discussed in Picnic Fun. Do not expect intense computational practice. This comprehensive set of CCSS resources may work well with reluctant math students.
