   Entertaining book for very basic fraction concepts
I received this book for my daughter, who is in kindergarten. It illustrates very basic fractional concepts in a way that my daughter got very interested. For it's purpose, the book amused my daughter with the talk of sharing with siblings and there is a food fight at the end that she found funny. Afterwards we had a discussion about how she should not really talk like they do in the book and we don 't throw food, but she seemed to have no problem understanding that it was a book and was supposed to be funny and that it wasn 't necessarily real. When we have food that can be easily divided, she has a blast applying fractions to it.
   great idea, bad execution
I'm expecting this to be a fun storybook about fractions. In fact, it is a very boring story about two siblings who don 't want to share. The only fractional figure in the book is half. It is only shown on 2-3 pages. I expected a story where more fractions were introduced to share the inno '' with a larger and larger group.
   Kids fighting then food fight
The siblings fight over food and the mom steps in to make them share half so that each has the same amount. I did not like the book because of how the children were acting... and I don 't want kids to read that kind of example. Kids should not eat meat pizza, juice, cookies and cupcakes at the same time... Yes, it teaches the concept of math very well, but I do not like the book. It is returning it.
   Kids Love It
I bought this book because I remembered reading it to my class by the school librarian in the 90s. As a first teacher, I read it and bring it up when we start understanding 12 and 14 in the spring. Kids love it and want to read it constantly. Struggling readers can often read it also because of the rhyming. I see there are a lot of negative reviews, but characters in books are often not role models and it is a good chance to have a conversation.
   Great book!
Great book by Aloud to teach half fractions. It was still a great read.
   I don't think it's a very nice book. There's a lot of jealousy and arguing ...
My 6 year old loves reading this book and while it ends up okay, I don 't think it is a very nice book. There is a lot of jealousy and arguing and fighting between the children in the book and overall not a great story.
   Fun Living Book for Math!
The physical application of concepts in the story helps me as an educator to come up with new activities to apply physical concepts! The illustrations are beautiful and the books are uncomplicated to the point and beautiful. These are used as a resource to introduce new units!
