Mathical Book Prize Announced!

2 Mar

Mathical-H-Logo_Books2“The Mathical Book Prize aims to inspire a love of mathematics in the everyday world in children of all ages. Each year’s winners and honor books join a selective and ever-growing list of new and previously published fiction and non-fiction titles for youth.

These titles are as varied as the intersection between literature and mathematics — that is to say, they encompass picture books, novels, poetry collections, puzzle books, biographies, and more!

The Mathical selection panel is drawn from librarians, teachers, mathematicians, early childhood experts, and others. The jury selects winners in five grade-level categories: PreK, K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.” (Mathical website)

I love this concept of combining math and reading together! What I like is that they don’t just hand out prizes, you really have to earn it. This year there is no prize for a 6-8 grade title or a 9-12 grade title and I appreciate the honesty of the selection panel for not just picking a mediocre title, but really looking for high-quality material. Check out the 2018 winners:
