Back to school… and APPLES for the teacher!

In this book, little elves work very hard to cut apples into fractional parts that are the same size.

Learn about apples, how they grow, and how they are used.


Study fractions:

  • as part of a whole, like “1/3 of an apple”;
  • as part of a whole set, like “1/3 of 12 apples”; or
  • as a measurement, like “1/3 of a cup of apple cider.”
