From the team that brought us You Can, Toucan, Math, comes another fun way of looking at something many kids have trouble getting the hang of: fractions. Although there is no narrative story within the book to explain how fractions work, there are plenty of imaginative, creative approaches presented in each fraction problem. The computer-generated artwork is very bold and bright―it not only enlivens the pages, it graphically explains the concepts within the "story problems" it accompanies. A lot of essential terminology, like "numerator" and "denominator" is explained, along with functions like comparing, multiplying, and dividing fractions. A former math teacher, Adler ably covers a lot of essential ground in one hardcover book and makes it fun. The book is sure to be quite useful for parents and teachers alike in introducing techniques for solving word problems. The reinforced library binding and heavy duty paper stock assures that it will stand up to repeated use.
