Enslow Elementary's math series, Math Fun With Sebastian Pig and Friends was recently reviewed in SLJ's Series Made Simple April 2009. (To see the review, click the title link!)
These books are fun ways to teach kids how to count, subtract, add, measure, count money or find shapes. I was just reading Money Math With Sebastian Pig and Friends At the Farmer's Market, and the illustrations are incredible and really bring the characters of Sebastian Pig and his friend Louie the anteater alive. Elementary school students are going to love to learn math this way!
