Amazing Machines First Numbers Review

Books for Babies and Toddlers Featured Books for 3+ readers First Concepts

Counting from one to ten is great fun with this jolly, carefully thought-out board book.  There’s just one line of text on each page, short but interesting with some nicely onomatopoeic language (tractors chugging, fire trucks rumbling). This describes the scene and numbers the vehicles.  Readers are also asked questions and given extra things to count and find, a good way to keep and hold their attention. The illustrations are bright and attractive, lots of fun to look at, and the machines each carry smiling animal characters – stories in waiting there. A round tab on each page reinforces number recognition and makes it easy for little hands to turn the pages. ~ Andrea Reece

There's a companion title, Amazing Machines First Words too!


Amazing Machines First Numbers Synopsis

Three boats bobbing on the sea. Which boat has a sail? What else can you see? For fans of the bestselling Amazing Machines series, this is a perfect way for young children to learn numbers and counting with their favourite vehicles! Robust, easy-to-hold tabs along the top and side guide young hands to each number from 1 to 10. There are colourful scenes to explore, and questions on each page encourage children to investigate further.
