Division Books and Resources
The Doorbell Rang, Pat Hutchins
Victoria and Sam are excited that Ma has made a dozen cookies. Ma declares them not as good a Grandma's, but the children are eager to divide them. They each have six on the plate, when the doorbell rings and more friends arrive dividing the cookies more. Each time the children divide the cookies, the doorbell rings again and more friends arrive. When it appears that things can't get worse, the doorbell rings and it is Grandma bringing dozens more to share.
A Remainder of One

When dividing by 2, the remainder is 0.
Divide by 3; remainder is 1. Divide by 4: remainder is 2. Divide by 5; remainder is 0. Have students make up clues for other problems. 
17 Kings and 42 Elephants, Margaret Mahy
With dreamlike jungle illustrations and rollicking verse, a story in verse. The language is rich and imaginative, and the book is exquisite.
Give students the problem of figuring out how 17 kings could share the responsibility equally of taking care of the 42 elephants.
p.s. Despite what the picture says, this was the only pic I could copy, and you can't look inside! :)
