    Stuart Murphy has written a children's book on estimation named "Betcha'" I have used it for about 3 years to introduce estimation to my class, and it does so wonderfully. I have seen its value when my students estimate, because I have slips of paper for them to write their name, their estimate, and how they arrived at the estimate. Many times I see ideas from the book used as part of their explanation. Stuart Murphy has a series of books on different math strands that are all VERY good to use to introduce your topic with.
