It can often be difficult to engage reluctant learners in any subject, but it seems especially challenging to excite and engage kids who are uninterested or struggling with math. One of my favorite ways to draw kids in and share math in a non-threatening way is through the use of math story books! If you’re not familiar with any, there are a wealth of quality story books out there that introduce various math topics in a way that is fun!
