"This appealing book makes a potentially difficult concept a lot of fun. Souders introduces both the concepts of parts of a whole and parts of a group. She uses a cow to help explain fractions with inviting pictures that match the rhyming text beautifully. Answers to the posed questions appear at the back. The last spread contains many elements to practice the math."

"My son's first grade teacher said that they are going to begin with fractions this year. My son loves math, so I thought he would love this book. At first he thought it looked too babyish for him and he didn't want to read it. But mom is usually right, and when he did read it, he enjoyed it. We laughed along together at some of the silly illustrations and situations, and he liked using his brain to try to figure out the fractions. By the end of the book, he really got the idea of how to figure out the top part and the bottom part of a fraction. Great book!"
