This book was a great way to get kids to see the power of exponential growth.

One Grain of Rice by Demi is a mathematical Indian folktale. It tells the story of a selfish Raja who is hoarding all of the rice from the people in his province during a time of famine. One day the Raja is in need of service and is assisted by Rani. As a reward for her help, Raja offers her a reward of her choosing. She asks that for 30 days of rice: a single grain the first day, double that the second day, and so on. It was such a modest demand that the Raja didn't think twice about agreeing to it. I don't think that Raja was aware of exponential growth.

I would recommend this book for teachers because it offers both a moral and mathematical lesson. The illustrations are gorgeous and inspired by the Indian paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries. Books that are conceptually strong for older students are not so easily found and this one really gets the students thinking. Possibly even asking and pondering the question about how much Rani received in all. ( )

This is a children's book, beautifully illustrated. However, because of the mathematical principles contained within (doubling), it would be for an older child. In the book Rani is more clever than the Raja, who confiscated all the rice for himself. ( )

This book features a young girl in India who does a good deed to the Rajah during a famine and when the Rajah asks what reward she desires, she requests that he give her one grain of rice and then double the grains of rice each day for 30 days. This book would be great in a Math classroom. It would be a good tool to teach exponential functions and the power of doubling.

I think this book is great for middle grades math classrooms. This book takes place in India where a girl named Rani pays a good deed to the Rajah during a famine, so he asks her how he can reward her. Rani asks him to reward her with one grain of rice and to double the grain of rice each day for 30 days. The book shows what kind of effect doubling can have on something so small. This book is a great way to teach students about exponential equations. ( )

This book follows raja and Remi. Remi is a young girl in the town in which raja is in charge. The readers get to see how one grain of rice can turn into thousands with exponential functions involved. This book would be a great introduction or a good way to explain what and how exponential functions work. ( )

Long ago in India, there lived a raja who believed that he was wise and fair, as a raja should be.
