This fun first number book is a perfect introduction for toddlers to the exciting world of numbers and basic mathematical concepts, and companion to the award-winning First Word Book. After guiding the child through the numbers up to twenty, the book progresses to shape, size, and measurement exercises. Packed full of interactive games and puzzles, the First Number Book encourages children to take an active interest in, and practise newly acquired math and number skills. A thematic arrangement -- How many animals are there?, In what order do you get dressed?, Who has the least? and Find the numbers in the street -- allows children to explore numbers within familiar contexts. Features a bright, clear design and Mandy Stanleys' bold, child-friendly artwork, as well as helpful introductory tips for parents. Includes a colorful, pull-out first numbers poster.
