Beyond Facts & Flashcards not only presents lots of games and activities that parents and their children can play together, it also describes how the activities relate to mathematics, what's reasonable to expect a child to understand, and how to ask questions that elicit and support children's learning. This is an excellent resource to recommend to parents of primary and elementary students.
