What a fun book to read-aloud during a unit on fractions! This book should be used for grades 2/3-5 as a way to help students explore the existence of fractions in our everyday lives.

After this text is read, students should be encouraged to find several fractions that appear in their own lives every day.

The little boy in this book wakes up to a world of fractions. It's a great book to teach children fractions, because they are interesting examples that students can relate to. Being easy for students to relate to it is easy to use as a hook for a lesson and building a lesson on fractions around this book.

This book would be a good math literature lesson aide. Fractions can be confusing for students having a visual aide (which the pictures provide) would help learners learn easy. The characters used in the book were also next add-ins such aliens and talking animals.

My have day incorporate fractions. I like this whole series of books and the illustrations. Make an activity of all the fractions in the book and draw them. Pictures or cakes, cookies, trees, dart boards, or lily pads can all be used.

This is a great book to explore and begin learning about fractions. What exactly is a half? This book will help your students fully understand this concept when the little boy in the book wakes up to find his world in halves.

This would be a good book for a math lesson on fractions. This book has very good illustrations that provides an excellent visual of fractions for those students who are visual learners.
