Count 1 2 3 (My first touch and trace)
This is a very clever idea, one which I can't remember seeing in counting books before. The book concentrates on the numbers 1-20. Each page concentrates on one number and each has one lift the flap section - a large number which is traceable using a finger, as it is indented in the page and also has follow the direction arrows to help children learn how to write the numbers in later months. The flap has photographs of items to count i.e. five rabbits, six cupcakes and also has the words to show correct spelling of the numbers. At the end of the book there is a standard number line with dots to count and also some extra how many ......? pages with the answer hidden under the flaps.
The book has been cleverly designed and I think that the traceable numbers along with the directional arrows to show how to write them is very useful as I have seen adults showing their children very unique ways to write their numbers! all items have photographs of items, which children can identify with easily. The pages are cleanly designed and bright colours make them attractive to young children.
This is another fantastic book which I would recommend for very young children as a gift which will be both educational and attractive to them. It is never too young to start introducing babies to books.
Thank you to the publishers, Little Tiger Press, for sending me the book to review.
