Math and fiction? Yes, it’s possible…. You want to get away from textbooks for a week or two? Your child is struggling with multiplication? Maybe she will have fun reading fiction books that incorporate math concepts into the storyline.

For K – 3rd graders, try the Math Matters series. They are short stories that incorporate a different math challenge in each title and include additional activities.

For teens –  Fiction+Math=<3
