Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2–This appealing book makes a potentially difficult concept a lot of fun. Souders introduces both the concepts of parts of a whole and parts of a group. She uses a cow to help explain fractions with inviting pictures that match the rhyming text beautifully. Answers to the posed questions appear at the back. The last spread contains many elements to practice the math.–Loreli. E. Stochaj, Franklin School, Summit, NJ α(c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Format: Hardcover
My son's first grade teacher said that they are going to begin with fractions this year. My son loves math, so I thought he would love this book.

At first he thought it looked too babyish for him and he didn't want to read it. But mom is usually right, and when he did read it, he enjoyed it. We laughed along together at some of the silly illustrations and situations, and he liked using his brain to try to figure out the fractions. By the end of the book, he really got the idea of how to figure out the top part and the bottom part of a fraction.

Great book! There's also a teacher's guide available at the author's website [...] which would be great for teachers, homeschoolers, or just for home enrichment.

We have thoroughly enjoyed having this book as part of our kid's collection! My girls both enjoyed the colorfully animated pictures, along with the riddles. I have a daughter with some learning disabilities and she found this to an entertaining way to go about Math. I could tell she even enjoyed seeing if she got the riddles right!! :) Thank you so much for putting your knowledge and creativity into a book that can help our children to learn and love math at the same time. Great job on this book! Looking forward to another book in the future, hopefully! :)

Whole-Y Cow! This is a fantastic book. From first grade to fifth it is a winner. Children will be engaged and entertained. The story line is whimsical and fun while the illustrations leave children laughing at this silly, little cow. What WILL she do next? My class of first graders never even knew they were learning and my daughter, in fifth grade, took the challenge to answer each question. Great work Taryn Souders.

Whole-y Cow! is a great book. The story is so fun that kids don't even realize that they are learning. The illustrations are whimsical and colorful. My 4 year old likes to refer to it as the "silly cow book". He doesn't yet understand all the fractions, but I like that he is hearing the verbiage. He will no doubt be able to better relate to the real life examples behind the concepts. We like the book so much I'm ordering one for my 7 year old niece for her birthday.

Mrs. Souders...thank you for writing this book. It is practical, fun, easy to read, and interesting to my 6 year old as well as my 4 year old. I love Whole-y Cow because I can adapt it differently for each age. It challenges my children to think, while keeping them interested and not wanting to give up. The illustrations are adorable, making it cute enough for a coffee table book. As a home educator, this is the kind of book I have been wanting for my home library.

We have read Whole-y Cow, by popular demand, every night since we bought it for our 5-yr-old - and it is blowing her mind. Our 3-yr-old is getting into it, too. Our Kindergartner is actually understanding fractions and loves it! This author is truly amazing for creating such a great book.

Whole-y Cow is a short, whimsical story infused with discovering fractions and developing a love for math. As an English major (me), who is wholly daunted by the prospect of teaching my daughter math one day, I adore this book. It is a perfect trifecta: clever, fun and educational. A personal note to the author, Taryn Souders: any plans to write sequels, teaching addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, too? ;)
