Introducing Factor Trees

We spotted You Can Count on Monsters at the library this week, and snatched it up because the Infant Bibliophile has been interested in both monsters and multiplication lately.  If you are looking for a fun way to introduce the idea of a factor tree and prime numbers, hunt this down!  (I don't recommend for the Bibliophile's age, although he has been enjoying leafing through it, but for older kids).  I'm not feeling very articulate tonight, but you can click through to Amazon for the full book description and other reviews.

Very fun! This is, for sure, a book for down the road for us as we're still working on basic numeral concepts. Still fun to think ahead, though!

Intriguing. I peeked online on Amazon and try to figure out if daughter will be intimidated or fascinated by this book, but thanks for the recommendation!
