The book covers numbers 1 through 100, with an introductory section that explains factoring, prime and composite numbers, and how the book is designed, all with colorful images and not too wordy. A section in the back has a further exploration of prime numbers. Visual learners will love this book (I'm one), and fans of numbers should keep a copy on their shelf.

Richard Schwartz grew up in Los Angeles. He wore only blue clothes between the ages of 7 and 11. He spent his youth obsessively playing tennis until video games distracted him. He majored in math at UCLA, got a PhD in math from Princeton, and is currently the Chancellor's Professor of Mathematics at Brown University. He is the author of a number of books, including Spherical CR Geometry and Dehn Surgery, Outer Billiards on Kites, You Can Count on Monsters, Man Versus Dog, Unnecessary Surgery, and The Extra Toaster. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Barrington, Rhode Island.

The composite number monsters are made up of their prime number monsters (factors)

The composite number monsters are made up of their prime number monsters (factors). This book is about prime numbers and factoring using numbers up to 100. I really did not enjoy the illustrations in this book because each monster has a defining feature that relates to its number and I found a few monsters whose characteristics were not clear enough to tell the corresponding number. I think it would be a little difficult for young children to keep track of the corners of the monsters while counting.

Richard Evan Schwartz. This volume visually explores the concepts of factoring and the role of prime and composite numbers. This book is a unique teaching tool that takes math lovers on a journey designed to motivate kids (and kids at heart) to learn the fun of factoring and prime numbers. The playful and colorful monsters are designed to give children (and even older audiences) an intuitive understanding of the building blocks of numbers and the basics of multiplication. The introduction and appendices can also help adult readers answer questions about factoring from their young audience.

The number 1 was sad, the monsters were overly complicated and did not elegantly explain their value, and the combinations of prime monsters were confusing. Richard Schwartz grew up in Los Angeles.

CRC Press Author and NPR's Math Guy Keith Devlin spoke with Scott Simon about how the book makes finding prime numbers fun.

"This is one of the most amazing math books for kids I have ever seen…," Devlin says. "Great colors, it's wonderful, and yet because [Schwartz] knows the mathematics, he very skillfully and subtly embeds mathematical ideas into the drawings."

After reading the reviews and the sneak peaks here on Amazon, I was expecting a great book from Mr. Schwartz. What I did not expect however, was how absolutely brilliant it was going to be! What Schwartz does with the monsters to teach about prime numbers is both beautiful and ingenious.

I homeschool 3 boys of primary school age. Our oldest son is autistic and has an extreme aversion to math. Our second son is the complete opposite, devouring anything and everything numeric. He's followed by our youngest who needs a thrill to sit still. All of my boys LOVE this book! My oldest (who is *the one* who would benefit the most from reading it) shied away from it at first. He's a bright boy and knew all too fast that the book was teaching math, a subject in which he struggles so much with. Well, after listening and watching me read this book, and seeing both his mother and his younger brothers having so much fun as we all "played" along, he had to come over and join in. He loves it! My two younger boys are quite obsessed with it. I have to give them turns with it!.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a struggling learner/special needs child. With all of its benefits academically, I would (and will) buy the book for adults as well, if not just for the art work! It's amazing (and clever!) how Mr. Schwartz brings to life these numbers! As an adult who's also had an extreme aversion to math (my entire life) I can honestly say that Mr. Schwartz is the first person to claim that math can be fun, and then went on to prove it to me! What's more, is that he proved it to my child(ren)!

Today in my Math Mavens program, we opened the book You Can Count on Monsters by Richard Evan Schwartz for the first time. This is a book I bought because I heard glowing reviews of it on NPR.

The concept of the book is teaching prime and composite numbers through colorful, geometrical monsters. It is written for any age, from preschool on up, and my students really appreciated it. They had a lot of fun looking at the monsters, spotting the prime monsters hidden inside the composite monsters, and describing what they saw. For example, one said the 20 monster looked like "two innocent two-monsters held in custody by evil nacho chips."

For fans of Singapore Math or number bonds in general, you will also appreciate how each number is represented with a number of dots, the numeral, and a multiplication number bond for composite numbers. All in all, it makes a powerful set of connections for students between numbers, images and fun.

The book covers numbers 1 through 100, with an introductory section that explains factoring, prime and composite numbers, and how the book is designed, all with colorful images and not too wordy. A section in the back has a further exploration of prime numbers. A wonderful enrichment for any math education!

This is one of my favorite books for learning about prime numbers and prime factors.

Visual learners will love this book (I'm one), and fans of numbers should keep a copy on their shelf.

5 Stars!

I have always loved math and hope that my children will too. I firmly believe that good math learning requires creativity, to help learners understand the concepts rather than just memorize. This book is a fantastic way to do that with multiplication and factors (and probably a few other basic elements of math that I don't know enough to name) for an elementary school age onward. My bright 5 year old daughter loves this at the moment, although I thought when I first looked at it that it would be too advanced for her. She enjoys looking for the images of the prime monsters within the pictures of composite numbers and sorting out their relationships ("look Mommy the three is poking the two and he doesn't like it" on the 6 page) on the right side of the pages. On the left sides, she is counting dots, adding and starting to learn multiplication. As a concept. Wow! Factors and composite vs prime numbers are introduced but full understanding will come as she gets a little older. I'm buying this again as a birthday gift for my niece who is about to enter first grade.

As described -- fast shipping -- thank you!!

My son loves this book so much when we checked it out from the library that I had to buy it for him. It showed up in excellent condition. I couldn't even tell it was used. Thank you so much!

My kid is in first grade. After receiving (and loving) this book, he's flying through math well above his grade level. If your kids are into math, or if they're struggling with multiplication and factors, this would be a great book.

My daughter loves this book. Helpful for math.
