Introduces the concept of halves using a simple rhyming story about a brother and sister who do not want to share their food.

Two siblings fighting over food their mother has brought home in a quirky rhyming story. It teaches simple math in a clever way when they split up a pizza equally by slices or cupcakes. A simple yet fun way to get children interested in simple addition and fractions. I love this book because it is exactly like me and my twin brother.

This book is an excellent book to use while teaching kids beginning fractions. I would use this to show my students how they can use real life things to figure out their math fractions. I enjoyed how they use the things that interested the kids to teach them. ( )

A cute story about a brother and sister who learn to share half of their food with each other and in the process learn a bit of math along the way. The brother and sister need to share equally with pizza, juice, cupcakes, cookies, and cleaning up the mess they made. This story is a fun way to introduce children to math concepts through a creative rhyming story that could be applicable in their lives (if they have siblings).

This book is a wonderful way to incorporate literature into a math lesson and introduce children to the concept of fractions and whole vs. parts. The rhyming words serve to make the story more memorable and easier to understand. After reading the book, students can think of other examples of items that can be split in 1/2 - either food or other type of objects - such as paper, crayons, etc. Review by zsvandyk

Children learn about fractions at school but fractions are also an important part of everyday life outside the classroom.In this riotous book, Stuart J. Murphy and G.
