The best math books  -- mostly by Stuart J. Murphy

A Listmania! list by M. Heiss (USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Stuart J. Murphy's math readers are the best. They ALWAYS teach the math concepts. Any one of his books is a good bet, math-wise -- they make great teacher or classroom gifts.

Murphy's books also demonstrate children behaving in ways you would want your own children to emulate.

Math readers + behavior coaching = books to LOVE

At the bottom of the list, I put some math taching books that are NOT by Stuart J. Murphy, but really get the job done."
