Synopsis

Number Rhymes: Tens and Teens by Opal Dunn

This entertaining collection of rhymes explores counting backwards, counting in twos, and counting numbers beyond 10. From 'Five Little Monkeys' and 'Ten in a Bed' to 'One, two, buckle my shoe' and 'One hundred bees round a hive', these rhymes provide a rich range of enjoyable opportunities to familiarise children with ways of manipulating numbers. An introduction, 'Cracking the Code', discusses ways of learning to count and use numbers beyond 10 - tens and teens - thus providing a useful help for adults. Collected by a highly reputable early years educationalist with the clear aim of developing early number skills, these rhymes are vividly illustrated by an exciting new talent in children's picture books. This is a book that no foundation stage class should be with out.

Reviews

This cheerful and memorable book gets 10/10 from me. Nayu's Reading Corner Learning is always more effective when it's fun and this lively picture book, which is packed with songs and rhymes, is ideal for giving young children a head start with number confidence. This is a great book for sharing. Booktrust
