It is laid out with the picture on the right hand page, and on the left hand page nice and big, the fraction on top (1/6), the words in the middle (of a six-pack), and on the bottom both the decimal (.166) and the percent (16.6%)
So here comes my question about this book... wouldn't you round the repeating .166666 up to .167 or put a line over the 6 to show it's repeating ? (I'm no math authority, but that's the way I understand it.) That's o.k., my son has fun finding "mistakes" and figuring out what it "should be," which is a teaching opportunity in itself.
I found this book more useful as reinforcement and review once I had already introduced my son to fractions, percents and decimals, and their relationship to each other. Otherwise, a kid may see the logical connection to 3/4 of a sandwich and the fraction, but be confused by the decimals and percents. Of course, that can be an opportunity to explain how they are related. :) But the explaining will be up to you... that's not covered in this book. It's more of a visual-aid teaching tool. I was a bit disappointed when I first got it at how simple it was, but It really is handy to have something like this to use.

Perhaps the low quality construction of this piece has me giving it a poor review. It has the feel of something printed at OfficeMax, more like a pamphlet than a book. Read morePublished on January 17, 2013 by B. Lee
This book has helped me in my classroom. The kids understand it more, because it deals with real, everyday things they are aware of.Published on December 30, 2012 by KK
This reminds me of a Tana Hoban book, and it's very clever. Visual learners and intuitive thinkers should get a lot out of it.Published on February 18, 2012 by J.A.
