Mary Clare Likes to Share (Step Into Reading: Step 2 Reading with Help)

K-Gr 1. This easy-to-read rhyming story introduces the concept of fractions as a girl shares snacks with her family and friends. Mary Clare splits a pear in half for her and her brother, a muffin in thirds for her classmates, and a pizza cut into eight slices. Each time, a different food is divvied up in a different location. Readers see the whole, then the parts, and then the "re-wording" into "One-third for you and you and me!," and so on. The story ends with Mary Clare inviting her friends to share in her birthday celebration. The clear, attractive artwork is a big plus in this simple but useful title that highlights fractions, friendship, and sharing. - Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
