This is good if your want to discuss division in very rudimentary terms. I used it for that purpose. I wouldn't have made it through the hundred or so words otherwise, but I did and now I'm done with it, though I don't know if I'm any better for it. Read full review

User Review  - momma2 - LibraryThing

The kids thought this book was "totally lame." The storyline was too simplistic for it's intended audience of 3rd graders I think. I can see using these kinds of ride situations as real world examples but the book was basically a word problem with pictures. Not exactly and enjoyable read. Read full review
