    This is the most efficient way to find what you need, print off the list and shop for titles elsewhere unless you have plenty of funds... This co. will also send you a free catalog, it's a valuable resource and must have esp. for a new teacher.

    Stuart Murphy has great books to use with math. They have ideas in the back. He also has a website with ideas to use his books. I have used them in fourth grade and will use them next year when I move to second. Fun!

    I second the Marilyn Burns! Also, I know in our math program, there are suggestions in each unit for picture books that compliment the units. You may find the same thing when you dive into the programs.

    Marilyn Burns uses trade books to teach math concepts. Scholastic has sets of her recommended trade books with a guide from Marilyn Burns to teach different math concepts based on grade level. I have the set for kindergarten and I love it. http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/classroombooks/marilynburns.htm
    Marilyn Burns is also the author of many books to teach math
    Other Authors/series:
    Loreen Leedy has some great books about math concepts and
    Stuart J. Murphy (Math Start Books) has one of the most extensive sets of math based books I've seen.
