The Lion's Share by When Ant receives a special invitation to dine with Lion, she is ready to be on her best behavior. During dessert, the other guests do not mind their manners, each one taking half of the remaining cake as it is passed around. By the time it reaches Ant, barely a crumb is left for her to share with the King! She promises to make up for it by baking another cake for the King, and not to be outdone, all the other animals in turn offer to make twice as many cakes as the next.

With McElligott's signature humor and gorgeous mixed-media art, the math concepts of halving and doubling have never been so much fun.

Max's Math by Max and his two brothers hop into a car and go looking for problems they can solve. They cruise down highway number 4 on their way to Shapeville, but they see an abandoned number along the way. Is it a 6? Is it a 9? And what's it doing on the side of the road? Once the trio reach Shapeville, there's another problem: a flood washed away all of the squares. Max and his brothers show the town that putting together two triangles will bring their shapes back together, and then they follow the residents on a trip to Count Town, where they put the missing number back in its place in the countdown to a rocket's blastoff. This title has Common Core connections.

Peg + Cat by What do fractions have to do with pizza? The stars of the Emmy Award-winning animated series Peg + Cat serve up a delicious new episode. It's lunchtime at Peg's Pizza Place! Peg and Cat are excited to take their first order -- from the Teens! -- only to learn that some of their customers want a whole pizza while one of them wants half a pie. How can Peg and Cat make half a pie when they don't know what half is? Luckily, Ramone and Mac are there to help, with a slice up the middle of the pizza. As more customers come in, things get entertaining, with Peg singing a jazzy song and Cat doing a dance. But soon there's another problem: four orders, but only two and a half pizzas left. Peg is totally freaking out -- until Cat reminds her that when it comes to halves and wholes, it's all in how you slice it.
