The book "How Much Is That Guinea Pig in the Window" is a story about a class of students that are working to raise money for a class pet. It is a very interesting way to talk about and encourage the use of math by using a story that could actually happen. This story is one that is relatable for children because it is about a group of students in a classroom setting. Not only is the story interesting but, it incorporates math. A child could be reading this book and not realize that they are doing math at the same time. Since math is a tough subject, this is a great technique to encourage math skills. This book also provided a lot of pictures which can help a child to see the numbers being talked about to help them follow along with the story. This story could actually happen which makes this a realistic fiction. This is book that I would recommend in a math class. ( )
