My Very First Book of Numbers
Although there are no caterpillars in this little puzzle/number book, the bananas have a distinct Eric Carle look to them and the layout of the book is sheer genius. Designed to keep little fingers and minds busy, inside the cover is a split-page board book format. The lower half is a series of pages with number words and accompanying pictures of fruit (i.e. eight plums). The upper half has information only on the right side – a digit and the same number of black squares. The idea is that after going through the pages, you match the uppers with the lowers. A correctly matched set of pages will show a digit in the upper right corner, then three squares, three apples and the words “three apples.” ~ Janice
Can you tell how many cherries there are? How many apples? In the brilliantly colorful My Very First Book of Numbers, children can find the number of fruits in the bottom half of a page that matches the number of boxes and numerals in the top half. This new, bilingual edition will also allow them to match English and Spanish words for each. Children will love solving the puzzles of this clever, vibrant book.
