With Dayle Ann Dodds’s engaging rhymes and Abby Carter’s dynamic illustrations, this introduction to fractions is a piece of cake.
Miss Bloom runs the Strawberry Inn, and she absolutely loves visitors. Throughout the day, she welcomes a cast of hilarious characters, from a duchess to a dog trainer, until all the rooms are taken. It’s a full house! But in the middle of the night, Miss Bloom realizes that something is just not right — and sure enough, downstairs the guests are eating her cake. Readers will be happily inspired to do the math and discover that one delicious cake divided by five hungry guests and one hospitable hostess equals a perfect midnight snack at the Strawberry Inn.
