I can see this game being a useful learning tool in a school to reinforce the teaching with a fun (ish - see below) activity. However, as a family game it fails. The problem is two-fold. First, children are smart (even if they don't know their fractions), and know when you are trying to shoe horn learning into something that should be a fun family experience. It's like feeding your kids broccoli ice cream.
Secondly, the game just isn't much fun. In fact, the way the game is designed makes most games a boring slog. On a few of the boards are fractions which are uncommon in the deck of tiles (e.g. 3/10), which means you typically spend most of the game chasing that tile through the deck. If someone else draws your tile and discards it, you have to wait for the whole deck to be turned before you can get it again.
For my money, if you want a family game to play at home and your children are old enough to know fractions, choose something more genuinely fun, like Carcassonne or Ticket to Ride. Your child will learn things from playing these games too, just different skills. Leave fraction games for the school room.
