Developed using progressive complexity, 'My First Book of the Number' encourages children to learn to write numbers, and then put into practice what they have learnt by asking them to count items and label them with the correct number. Finally the book helps them build on stages one and two to combine what they have learnt with things they might already know, allowing for independent play and a fun learning experience. AGES: 5+
