Butler Bookshelf

This week on the Butler Bookshelf, we’re turning to stories to help build math skills. In Luna’s Yum Yum Dim Sum, Natasha Yim and Violet Kim give readers a problem to solve: on Luna’s birthday, her family go out for dim sum to celebrate, but they cannot agree on how to share their pork buns. How can they divide them fairly? This sweet exploration of division and fractions is a delicious treat. For more great reads, check out the list below!
