Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

In this fun-filled look at fractions, Brian P. Cleary and Brian Gable demonstrate how fractions work by splitting whole objects into parts. The comical cats of the wildly popular Words Are CATegorical® series divide everything from pieces of pizza to groups of people into halves, thirds, tenths, and more. Peppy rhymes, goofy illustrations, and kid-friendly examples take the fear out of fractions.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring)
Cleary starts with pizza slices as an example of fractions in action. He also talks about cooking ("Fractions come in handy / if you ever help with baking. / You'll see them in the recipes / for breads and cakes you're making") then touches on terminology (numerator, denominator). Information is limited, but it's an entertaining starting point.
