Synopses & Reviews
This fun first number book is a perfect Spanish language introduction for toddlers to the exciting world of numbers and basic mathematical concepts. After guiding the child through the numbers up to twenty the book progresses to shape, size, and measurement exercises, games and puzzles. Mi Primer Libro de Numeros' thematic arrangement allows children to explore numbers within familiar contexts.
This book is certainly appropriate for older and younger readers, as older readers can be coached to answer all the book's questions, and younger readers will enjoy counting the bright objects.
