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.
