The Great Divide - Children's Book Review

Book Synopsis:

Animals, like people, enjoy spending time with their friends and family. Many groups of animals have their own unique names. Did you know that a group of gorillas is called a band? And a bunch of billy goats is a tribe? Following in the footsteps of Multiply on the Fly (multiplication), 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 Review:

In The Great Divide, children can learn about groups of animals while committing division skills to memory.  Different types of animals are represented in colorful illustrations.  The cadence of the story is told in a rhyming format.  Further lessons can be learned in the "Creative Minds" section of the book.  Collective nouns matching and a detailed explanation of division are just a couple of the educational pages that provide supplemental educational material. 

The Great Divide is a Spring 2012 release from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
