Counting is Easy Peasy introduces children to the concept of 'place value' using a little character called Hedgicus. It is written in humorous rhyme as children both enjoy and learn more readily from this form. Slipped into the rhyme are the important vocabulary of 'before', 'after' and 'in between' as well as written sums. All they need to know is 1 to 9 and they'll be counting to 100 in no time at all, understanding that they don't need to worry about what we CALL numbers in order to WRITE them. They will also become friends with numbers... an attitude of mind so vital to later success in Maths.
Currently available in PDF format only, it is beautifully illustrated throughout with friendly characters to further aid children's engagement.
