This is a wondeful book about fractions! The illustrations are literally mouth watering. I would definitley incorporate a math lesson about fractions with this book. I would also do the activities that are mentioned in the book (giving all students a hershey bar and dividing it up to determine fractions). I love this book and think it is one of the best concept books that I have seen.

The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Fractions Book is a non-fictional informational book that shows students how fractions can be used to divided a Hershey bar into several pieces. Not only does the book take students through the various ways it can be broken apart but it also teaches them a little bit about the history of Hershey chocolates! I would recommend this book for students in second and third grade. Numerous visual representations are used throughout the book - mainly the candy bar and it's different divisions - so students can see how fractions can be represented with candy. It can be paired with a manipulative - a Hershey's candy bar - so students can follow along with the representations in the book and have a tactile demonstration at their fingertips. As the book precedes it often poses questions to the reader about which way they would divide the bar if it was up to them and why. These questions allow students to use fractions to justify their reasoning for how many pieces of chocolate they would want and how many they would want to share with a friend. They also show students the real world applications fractions can have in an interesting way - by using candy. Students could also use this book in pairs or small groups when learning about fractions and see how the different fractions they break their bar into effects the amount each person ends up with in the end!

This is a great book that my students loved. I gave them candy bars to go with the book and we read the book and worked out the fractions as we went. This book talks about fractions using a hersheys candy bar.

Fun way, especially if you buy the candy for hands on visuals, to learn math concepts.

"The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Fractions Book" by Jerry Pallotta is my first read by this author. He came to speak at my daughters school last year and I bought this book from him. He was very nice to sign it too. It is one of the BEST ways to describe how to do fractions to a child. My daughter is in the 4th grade this year and has started to learn about fractions. We used a Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar to show how to use fraction along with the book. The way it engaged her was something wonderful to see. It's a fun way to learn about fractions using something in our ordinary life.
