Animals, like people, enjoy spending time with their friends and family. Many groups of animals have their own unique names. Did you know group of gorillas is a called a band? And a bunch of billy goats is a tribe? Following in the footsteps of Multiply on the Fly (multiplication), the award-winning What s New at the Zoo? (addition) and What s the Difference? (subtraction), this rhythmic, fun-to-read-aloud book introduces children to division as they conquer bands, tribes, mobs and more.

My Comments: Another winning non-fiction book by Sylvan Dell Publishers. This book not only reviews division facts, but teaches what groups of animals are called, collective nouns matching, penguins of the world map, division as the opposite of multiplication, and hands on: dividing cookies. This book comes in hardback, paperback, eBook in English, and eBook in Spanish. Visit SylvanDellPublishing.com for more information.
Again I read this book to my second graders, and they think they are so grown-up because many of them know these division facts. The illustrations are wonderful and support the text. Animals always keep their attention, and this book has a good variety of them. My second graders and I give this book a thumbs up!
