This book is a book introducing the concept of fractions through apples. The book begins by explaining about apples and about fractions and then how you would split apples among people to make it fair for each person. This book gives as much information about apples, where they come from, and various other fruits as it does about fractions and the different forms that they can take.
Critique (Genre)- This is a great informational text for students trying to learn their fractions. The information that it gives about apples and the different types and uses is very helpful and also is the underlying theme to learn fractions through. The amount of information on fractions wasn't overwhelming and would be great to wet the appetite for fractions.

This is a great book to teach fractions with. It is a very student friendly apporach to learning how to make fractions. The book uses apples to represent the different types of fractions, as well as, improper fractions. Also, after I read the book, everytime my students ate apples they talked to me about the book.
