"Fresh, whimsical illustrations fairly fl oat off the pages. Rhyming text invites readers. . . . A fun choice for reinforcing the concept of fractions."— SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNALMiss Bloom runs the Strawberry Inn, and she loves visitors. All through the day she welcomes a cast of hilarious characters until all the rooms are taken. It’s a full house! But in the middle of the night, Miss Bloom senses that something is amiss — and sure enough, the guests are all downstairs eating dessert. Readers will be inspired to do the math and discover that one delicious cake divided by five hungry guests and one doting hostess equals a perfect midnight snack at the Strawberry Inn. Piece of cake!
Five hungry guests, searching for the perfect midnight snack, help themselves to Miss Bloom's delicious cake during their stay at the Strawberry Inn, in a rhyming text that provides examples of fractions using elements of the story.
