I really loved this visual step by step approach to fractions. I used it with my older son and now am purchasing it again for my younger son.

be aware before buying.
I accidently bought this single book without realizing there is a whole set on the website with a parents guide, fractions pieces, and an answer key. Look for the whole set first. Now that I already have this book, I have to go back and order the whole set in order to get the answer key... Kind of a hassle.
