Numicon: At the Seaside Big Book by Rachel Hussain

A big number book featuring delightful number songs by Rachel Hussain and appealing whimsical illustrations by Mary Kilvert. The book and songs introduce a new and exciting way for young children to use and apply their number understanding, connecting Numicon maths shapes and activities with images of the seaside. Below are some samples of some of the spreads from the book. Big Book- Numicon at the Seaside comes in a protective portfolio case together with four small sized copies of the big book, a CD of the ten songs and a Teaching Guide, giving the words and music and suggestions for questioning and discussion and photocopy activities for school and home work. Numicon at the Seaside is designed to work with the Numicon Firm Foundations Kit to help children aged 4-5 develop an rich understanding of number ideas by directly connecting Numicon Shapes and patterns, numerals and counting around the theme of the seaside, in other words to help develop in children rich concept images of number ideas 1-10. The idea of 'concept image' is fully explained in the Numicon Foundation Stage Teaching Guide, as are the key mathematical ideas that children will encounter in the rhymes, pictures and activities.

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
