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), 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.This nonfiction picture book with a cuddle factor and rhyming text includes a 4-page For Creative Minds section in the back of the book and a 57-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide online.

The Spanish translation supports ELL and dual-language programs. The enhanced ebook reads aloud in both English and Spanish with word highlighting and audio speed control to promote oral language skills, fluency, pronunciation, text engagement, and reading comprehension.
