Expose Kids to Fractions and Division through Stories
This week's book is one that picks up on some of the mathematical skills that kids pick up through other channels. Just like building spatial reasoning through putting together puzzle pieces, kids can understand mathematical concepts well before they 'officially' learn them in school.
The Doorbell Rang is all about sharing Grandma's cookies. And each time the doorbell rings, there's more children at the door to share the cookies, presenting a great way to introduce division across the growing number of kids arriving.
The illustrations are in a cartoon style and filled with bright colour. There's a cat to find on each page that adds an additional element of enjoyment for kids. Plus, principles of fairness and sharing reinforce social development throughout.
Look out for the surprise ending!
