I recently tweeted a request for people to let me know about books that they have used as a context for maths with nursery, reception and KS1 children. The response was fantastic, thanks to everyone who replied. Here is the final list:

None the Number, a counting adventure
The Hungry Caterpillar (the most mentioned book)
A Place for Zero
How Big is a Million
Ladder to the Moon
Guess How Much I Love You (I read this book to my 2 y-o daughter!)
Ten on the Sled
One is a snail, ten is a crab
Benny’s Pennys
Ten Black Dots
Jim and the Beanstalk
George’s Marvellous Medicine
Dear Zoo
Kipper’s Birthday
Percy the Park Keeper (series)
Farmer Duck
Jasper’s Beanstalk
We’re going on a bear hunt
Six Dinner Did
Bad Tempered Ladybird
The Great Pet Sale
You’ll Soon Grow Into Them

Again, a huge thanks to everyone! I will try to tweet about how these books get used in my school. It shows the power of twitter as an ideas-sharing forum; it’s great to be linked up with so many passionate, knowledgeable people!
