Set of three books: Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics by Liping Ma
"Both sides in the math wars claim Dr. Ma as their own. Districts have distributed her book to teachers. Its broad appeal offers some hope for common ground in math education...we will continue fights over whether children should be taught arithmetic rules or theory. What Dr. Ma shows is that we need both." -The New York Times

Plus The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure by Hans Enzensberger
From an Amazon review: "Young Robert's dreams have taken a decided turn for the weird. Instead of falling down holes and such, he's visiting a bizarre magical land of number tricks with the number devil as his host. Starting at one and adding zero and all the rest of the numbers, Robert and the number devil use giant furry calculators, piles of coconuts, and endlessly scrolling paper to introduce basic concepts of numeracy, from interesting number sequences to exponents to matrices. Author Hans Magnus Enzensberger's dry humor and sense of wonder will keep you and your kids entranced while you learn (shhh!) mathematical principles. Who could resist the little red guy who calls prime numbers "prima donnas," irrational numbers "unreasonable," and roots "rutabagas"?" Somewhat reminiscent of The Phantom Tollbooth.
