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.

Any author who can make fractions fun is a treasure, and Souders does the trick, complete with humor, which is usually absent from math-related stories. Highly recommendedPublished 5 days ago by C. Hunter
