Description

Numbers are fun, and reciting rhymes is a natural way for children to pick up number words and enjoy using them. This entertaining collection of rhymes teaches ways to count while familiarizing young readers with numbers beyond ten. From "Five Little Monkeys" and "Ten in a Bed" to "One, two, buckle my shoe" and "One hundred bees round a hive," these rhymes provide a rich range of enjoyable opportunities that encourage readers to practice numbers. Adults benefit from an introduction that discusses ways of teaching little ones to count and use numbers beyond ten. Collected by a highly reputable early years educationalist with the clear aim of developing early number skills, these rhymes are vividly illustrated by an exciting new talent in children's picture books.
