Mathical Book Award

There are so many book awards, but this new one, the Mathical Book Award, is needed because there is nothing else out there like it. STEM books are all the rage right now as schools focus on amplifying the instruction and rigor of these subjects.  But the Mathical Book Award recognizes the best book that motivates children ranging from toddlers to teens to connect with and see Mathematics everywhere. The award is sponsored by Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) and the Children's Book Council (CBC). This award is open to all genres. Any book that makes Mathematics more relative, comprehensible, and inspiring is an added bonus to any classroom. This award will make the selection of Mathematical themed books a little easier for this librarian. Here's a list of the books that I have purchased and will purchase for my elementary library.
