Full House

By Dayle Ann Dodds
Illustrated by Abby Carter

"Fresh, whimsical illustrations fairly float off the pages. Rhyming text invites readers. . . . A fun choice for reinforcing the concept of fractions." β€” School Library Journal

Miss 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 β€” 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!
