The King's Chessboard

by David Birch, illustrated by Devis Grebu

A great story for children learning mathematical concepts, The King’s Chessboard tells the story of a wise man who refuses the king’s reward for completing a favor. When the king insists the man accept a reward, the man proposes a deal: He will take a payment of rice equal to each square on the king’s chessboard--doubling the amount he receives with each day. This quickly empties out the royal coffers. This book was selected as a Notable Children’s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies and Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children.
