Ages 5-7. This picture book presents math concepts through five little stories about teacher Miss Prime, possibly a slender hippo, and her multispecies students. Often divided into horizontal panels, the busy pages feature muted, chalk-box colours highlighted with brighter shades. Appearing in word balloons, the characters’ conversations form the main text, along with facts seen on signs, blackboards, and overhead projection screens. Concepts include: dividing geometric shapes into fractions, dividing sets of objects into equal parts, cutting fruit into equal shares, and dividing a dollar into fractions. Although most of the concepts would fit into a first- or second-grade unit on basic fractions, the crowded layout and the many concepts presented make it potentially confusing as a classroom readaloud. However, as an introduction for an individual or small group, it could be useful, particularly in the hands of a parent or teacher who designs creative follow-up activities.
