You will find many projects for young kids that integrate math and art in
the book, Math Arts: Exploring Math through Art by (me :o) ), MaryAnn
Kohl. You can take some sample projects from the book at my website at
brightring.com (go to free stuff from MathArts) or from the free
activities at Gryphon House's website at www.ghbooks.com (go to free
activities from MathArts).
These math concepts are sequential and very detailed, and the projects
are really great art ideas, very unusual!! They are not, however,
integrated with children's books as you needed, but maybe you could find
a project from the book to match up with a children's book you have in
hand.
