Silly but cute
on October 26, 2011
This book is a good way of getting across the idea of numerators and denominators, without naming them as such.
The house has a number of rooms available for guests (denominator), and as the rooms fill up, the fraction's numerator is shown changing. Then repeat quickly with cake.
OK for young kids, but there isn't much of a story here.
For older kids (3rd to 5th grade), I like "If you were a Fraction" by Trisha Speed Shaksan or "Working with Fractions" by David A. Adler.
