Learning Value
This book targets learning numbers 1-20 with a bonus number grid to 100 at the end. It is a great teaching resource for toddlers through Kindergarteners. It starts by defining the words digit and number. Then with each number, there are objects to count, what the number looks like written as a digit, a word in print, cursive, with fingers, and with dice. I also liked that they accounted for different fonts that could be used to show the same number when reading a typed number. The authors have a background in education and it shows. While there is a fun sentence for the picture my attention was mainly drawn to the number representation page and all the extension ideas it gave me on what to do with a child to accompany the book.
Overall, this book would make a great resource for children learning to count and represent numbers. A few minor comments I have regarding the numbers over 12 for the dice and the numbers over 10 for the hands still being represented using those modalities are a bit impractical for counting or gameplay (most of the time). The other thing mentioned was that it invited readers to place objects such as macaroni on top of the objects to assist in counting. That is a great idea for concrete learning, but the book was hardcover over paper pages and I think the book would be hard to lay open to allow a child to do that.
