Psychological research has shown that the best way for our children to learn how to recite and count numbers is through active and playful methods.

At this age group, children develop the ability to process a series of stimuli, as well as an understanding of quantity and the idea of numbers.

Abilities nurtured by this book:

  1. Becoming familiar with the names of the numbers;
  2. Being able to count (unlike reciting, counting carries an immediate link to the recited objects)
  3. Being able to process a series of input while maintaining concentration
  4. Overcoming diversions, such as a variety of shapes and of possibilities, challenging and improving the child’s abilities to discern. The variety in this story is adequately challenging while not too distracting, as all the characters belong to the same category (all being animals).
