Numeracy Library Package inclusions:


Our team of Australian maths teachers have selectively chosen the best 40 picture story books to use to introduce and hook students into maths. We have also created multiple comprehensive lesson plans for each picture story book, including teacher modelling, photographs of lessons in action and work samples, enabling and extending prompts, as well as higher-order questioning with specific page number references to the stories. 

Packages to support your teams


  • 40 hard copy picture books specifically chosen for their mathematical content, great literature and memorable storylines. 

  • 150 linked lessons plans (between 2 and 10 for each title) created by Australian maths leaders to bring the mathematics from each story to life in the classroom.

  • Each title has recommended year levels and best-matched concepts to maximise the most effective use of the stories to introduce and explicitly teach maths throughout the year. Teachers can simply click on the front covers and teacher summaries to be taken directly to the best mathematical storylines and rich lessons for their particular class. This ensures time-constrained teachers can quickly navigate and use the numeracy library titles and linked lessons for years. 

  • A complete catalogue with library set up recommendations, small display posters for easy teacher collection and resource protection tips to ensure the library is well-managed and maintained (especially in larger schools with many staff accessing it for lessons). Many schools house the picture books in their school library catalogue as part of a staff-only access, teacher resource area. 


All packs arrive to your campus with free delivery and the hard copy books pre-organised into their sections (place value; addition; subtraction; multiplication; division; fractions; measurement and geometry; statistics and probability).


The entire package is an outright purchase - not a year-by-year subscription.

Ordering information


“We have welcomed this resource as a whole school. Teachers have appreciated how they can incorporate the story books into their numeracy lessons. It allows for students to be exposed to maths language. They can see how maths is used in other parts of their day. It is a great hook for students.”
