Rooster’s Off to See the World, by Eric Carle, is a beloved children’s book. Not only does the story engage children it can also serve as a foundation for many mathematical investigations for primary mathematicians. There is evidence that when mathematical investigations are presented to students in a way that is more meaningful to them, they have more success in both learning and understanding the material. “Through varied opportunities for investigation, books support readers in developing healthy attitudes and dispositions about mathematical activity” (David Whitin, 2004).
