This is a great book for any teacher/person teaching young kids about fractions. It gives fractions not commonly found in other "teaching" books. It also give facts about apples and the various types. Great book to be used for a "hands-on" lesson.

I have had this book for at least a couple years and both my children (currently ages 5 and 8) love it. It is always a favorite at bedtime reading, and they love to look at it on their own too. It is really well thought out and beautifully illustrated. I don't know how much of the fractions concept they are getting from it (we won't know that until the subject comes up in school) but I have to think that by introducing the concept in a fun form and early on cannot hurt. I'd definitely recommend it!

I know this is a popular book for introducing fractions to children, but when I started to read to my 2nd graders, I had to stop because it entered territory they were not ready for. My recommendation -- read in sections as lesson progresses.

Really cute book. We like to use actual apples along with the book when we're reading it. My son is only 4, but he gets the concepts and apples are a natural (and delicious) way to learn about fractions. He gets a little more confused toward the end of the book when the fractions get a little more challenging (and they start talking about pies, pears etc.), but overall he really enjoys this book. Would be (and will be) great for a slightly older child.

I read Apple Fractions. I am in third grade. I think that this book would be good for a first and second grader to read. I think that because there is a good amount of words per page. It is about fractions with apples and fractions that are equal to other fractions.

I like the way it teaches fractions and doesn't use candy!

This wasn't totally what I expected and was a bit over my preschoolers' heads, but in a year or two it will be good.

Amazingly, starting at age 5, this became one of my daughter's favorite books. I've never read a book that explains fractions so simply and entertainingly. If only I had had such a book as a child! The author gives you a concept, such as how to split an apple with three friends so everyone gets the same size piece, then gives a lesson about different kinds of apples - like Granny Smith or Cortland. The fraction pages are great because they explain things like denominators very simply without it feeling like a math lesson. The apple pages are great because they give the child a mental break from fraction concepts. I highly recommend this book and it makes a great gift.
