This is a fun story that teaches about division by whole numbers as well as fractions. It is the second of two stories featuring Peter and his family in an After Happily Ever After-type of story, where we rejoin the characters from a classic fairytale after some time has passed. In this tale, Rumpelstiltskin joins up with the witch Matilda to make trouble in the kingdom.

The story is entertaining and I thought it was a novel way to teach about what fractions do to numbers when dividing. The math

I read this with my students while teaching 5.NF.B.7.b - Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients.

I like how it gives a strong visual of what division actually is - parceling a number into equal groups. There is only 1 page where they divide by fractions, but I found it was valuable reference - especially because it shows even though there are more pieces, those pieces are smaller. I like that it provided a small challenge at the end which reminded the

Nice. I think I need to find this one to own, as it needs multiple readings before my younger kids will begin to grasp some of the math concepts in this. BUT it definitely cleared some things in my head and gave me better understanding. Ha ha! ( :

What a wonderful book!! The plot could be independent from the math portion of the story. I also loved that the book taught a math concept and didn't just mention math.

This review is from: The Multiplying Menace Divides (Math Adventures) (Paperback)
I think it's rather brilliant of this author to write entertaining books about math for small children. The illustrations are cute but feel a bit amateurish. I do think that children would love them. The story is cute. Though it feels a bit pedantic, I liked it.
