I am a BIG fan of the Singapore Math Workbook curriculum series that is used in Singapore (they speak English!). My kids use it to supplement University of Chicago’s Every Day Math which I don’t love as much (too New Math for me!). I find that Singapore Math is both visual and intuitive plus it has plenty of math fact practice that Every Day Math lacks.

I pair these two excellent books together because they tell two parts of the same story: the near eradication of the Snowy Egret caused by a fashion trend and the birth of the Audubon Society in Boston, Massachusetts.
This wondrous book is a book without words but no words are necessary because Multi-Caldecott winning author, David Wiesner, tells the story in pictures. And what a story it is! If you take your children to the Jersey Shore or any shore for that matter, and your child is a dreamer or artist, then this is the book to spark imaginations!
