My fourth grade students loved this creative way of demonstrating the different parts of a whole. Jerry Pallotta takes a hard mathematical topic and makes it practical and fun for students. Fractions were hard for my fourth grade class and I sincerely think that this book helped make learning about fractions easier for my students. It's a cute way to teach a boring aspect of math. I as an educator don't think fractions are boring, but my students surely do. I obtained my copy of The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar Fractions Book for a dirt cheap price off a seller on Amazon. The seller had the book, which was in excellent condition, delivered to me in just five days.
Such a clever idea! We borrowed this from the library for my second grader, and now as he approaches 3rd grade, I figured it'd be fun to have a copy of our own (and due to always being prepared for s'mores, we also have Hershey bars on hand too!).

Makes it more interesting to talk about and learn fractions.
Although Chocolate Fever is the name of a book, most children
would be DELIGHTED to contract this fever! As elementary school
teacher, I have used Hershey Bars and their wrappers to teach
fractions for years. The kids LOVE it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this
book to parents as a primary teaching tool or as an enrichment
resource. It not uses pictures of the Hershey Bar to show several
fractions in twelfths, but explains their relationship to the whole. For example, 3/12 + 9/12= 12/12=1. On one page it shows two ways to name a fraction-- as the fraction itself and in
simplest form (reduced to lowest terms), although it doesn't
say so in exactly those words. At the end, the author shows
13/12, and says that more than one whole candy bar would be used.
I like this book because it can be easily adapted for use with
older children by including mixed numbers, writing fractions in
simplest form, and even decimals/percentages. Also, I enjoyed the
inclusion of facts and questions about The Hershey Candy Company
and the ingredients used, as well as where cacao trees grow.
This book could also be used as part of a unit about chocolate!
Buy it and enjoy the fun as you eat your Hershey Bar!
Basic fractions.
Teacher asked us to get these for my son and it helped him tremendously. Made fractions easy for him to understand
Teacher here! If you dont have this book and you teach fractions... Its a MUST HAVE!
This book engages children in the act of discovering the new concept of fractions through food.
This is a wonderful book to use as an anticipatory set before learning about fractions. It can be used on all ages.
