This delightful twist on a traditional nursery story will make counting great fun for any toddler. In this mathemagical tale you’ll get to meet 1 butler, 2 footmen, 3 maids, 4 horses, 5 grooms, 6 dogs, 7 gardeners, 8 chimney sweeps, 9 cooks and 10 soldiers but you’ll also get to hear about 3 bags of gold with 180 gold coins, 6 mattresses with 7 feather beds, 5 golden peas and one princess, but does she pass the test of being a ‘real’ princess? Of course it all ends happily and at the end toddlers can test their counting skills with 9 simple mathematical questions that make learning fun.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
