Read at Home: First Skills: Chip's 1,2,3 by Roderick Hunt

Read at Home First Skills are fun early learning books, which use your favourite Oxford Reading Tree characters to introduce important first skills to your child. Your favourite Oxford Reading Tree characters make learning fun and memorable. Read at Home First Skills books are the perfect accompaniment to all your Oxford Reading Tree Read at Home storybooks. From Floppy having no bone (0) through to Nadim playing with twenty (20) building blocks, this book takes the reader through a series of fun events to help him/her learn to count to twenty. Throughout, parent and child can read the number as a digit (e.g. 1) and see it written as a word (e.g. one). The reader can also count items relating to the relevant number on every page. They can also read a sentence about what the character is doing on the page (e.g. Kipper is looking for seven starfish). Fun illustrations support the text throughout. As with all Read At Home books, the book ends with fun activities for parent and child to enjoy together. Chip's 1, 2, 3 helps your child to: *Recognise the numbers 1-12 *Develop important number skills and enjoy counting *Understand essential number words such as half, double, first, last, lots and nothing *Uses the Oxford Reading Tree characters to introduce children to counting *Includes the number written as a digit and as a word (e.g. 1 and one) *Children can count items relating to the relevant number throughout *Support is offered to help the parent at the beginning and end of every book
