Small and large bread

Kipton's aunt bakes a large loaf of bread and a small loaf of bread. She cuts each loaf into tenths and gives Kipton 2 tenths of each loaf to take home. Kipton writes the equation 2/10 + 2/10 = 4/10 to show the amount of bread he takes home. Explain Kipton's mistake.

2/10 of large bread is not same as 2/10 of small bread.
Can't be simple added to give fraction 4/10 .
