I think using literature to teach math is very important. Teaching a math concept through literature makes it more personal and research has shown that kids learn best when the material has meaning and is useful to them. There are two brand new children's books that tie literature to math---you need to check them out--they are called The Fact Family and The Clock and the Mouse--you can find them on the website www.helps4teachers.com
