The article discusses the importance of literature-based education in mathematics used to support the children's literacy. Literature used in mathematics explores the number sense and real world applications of mathematical concepts and assists in the development of mathematical communications. Several literature based strategies can be employed including use of large format books, shared reading or guided reading to focus the learning on the comprehension and fluency of mathematics.
