Whole-y Cow! Fractions Are Fun by Taryn Souders

This is a fun farmyard introduction to fraction told in rhyme. Starting with a plain cow whose friends decide to paint one half BLUE! Each time a new fraction is introduced, questions prompt readers to think about the fraction as it relates.

"One whole cow patriotic through and through, worse a swimsuit that was red, white, and blue."

The text is accompanied by an illustration which can help readers decide which fraction is the appropriate answer. Extensions, with more complicated fraction related questions, could be developed to accompany this book. Great addition to any school library and/or younger elementary classroom.

Text: 5 Buckeye leaves
Illustrations: 4 Buckeye leaves
