A Number of Numbers is a glorious journey through twenty two brightly illustrated double page spreads. Each double page is based around a different theme - from Noah’s Ark to a haunted house to a mini-golf course to the fair ground - there really is something that will appeal to everybody. There is a definite Where’s Wally style to the book as the reader is asked to find all manner of things, all the while developing their counting skills and powers of observation. Children begin by having to count the 1 unicycle wheel all the way up to 100 yellow hard hats and everything in between. There are lots of additional challenges too, like finding the mischievous mouse who sneaks into every picture and finding pairs of things.
With beautiful illustrations that pack a great deal of humour this fun, interactive and educational book will appeal to all young children. Even though the book is produced for young readers I really like that the author does not shy way from using more challenging language. As readers count they will be absorbing information and learning the names of various instruments in an orchestra, different professions and the names of states in the USA, to name just a few.
A Number of Numbers is a fabulous way for young children to learn and consolidate their knowledge of number. The book is published as a large format coffee-table sized book with thick pages that will hold up to the exploration of little fingers. Recommended for 4+.
