Charlie Piechart and the Case of the Missing Pizza Slice
Charlie likes to think about fractions, like how many people like what kind of topping or what fraction of his friends Charlie can invite over. Charlie and his family are getting a pizza for dinner. They have to decide how many pieces to get on their pizza, and what kind of toppings to get. They get a large pizza, and every person should get two pieces of pizza, but when Charlie’s sisters open the box they see that one piece is gone! So Charlie tries to figure out who took it. Charlie looks around and he thinks one of his family did it, but none of them did. You’ll have to read the story to find out what happens next!
This book is kind of fun to see how Charlie thinks about everything in fractions, like his friend is one-fourth of his friends. The pictures are fun – Charlie has a pie chart for a body, which is weird but funny. The story doesn’t really teach you about fractions and pie charts but it just has you think about them a little while you read the story.
