    • This book is a fun book that models the concepts of fractions. The story shows and stresses to the reader that fractions are not just numbers but that fractions are presented everywhere.

      Though the illustrations in this book are bright and lively, the text is somewhat the opposite. All the concepts for fractions are covered thoroughly, some better than others. The best page was when he took several examples of fractions he'd covered previously and drew out the numerator and denominator (for example, he had explained that 3/10 of balloons were red. He wrote 3/10 = and then showed the three red balloons above the line, and the 10 balloons under the line).
