A while ago Christianne on Little Page Turners mentioned a book called Apple Fractions by Jerry Pallotta. With all the apples in the house, I was excited to see that our library DID have the book. How else are we going to turn our kids into math nerds like their parents than read fun math books?!? (Okay, there are other things at our house to help them on their way to being math nerds...but I'm always game for a good children's book.)
Firecracker loved the book. The elves are cute and fun to look at. There is also a lot of information about apples and their varieties...also perfect for a Washingtonian family. This is definitely going on my list of books I would like to own because it teachs about fractions in such a fun and straightforward way...and it's got something for kids at all different levels of understanding. Firecracker understood some of it, but she'll understand even more as her math skills improve.
