“One, two, three, four, five! Six, seven, eight, nine, ten! See!? Is easy as pie!”

It might be for the already learned grownups, but for the kids just starting out kindergarten? They wonder what do you even mean by numbers.  Listening to the teacher’s explanation for the tenth time (not that they would even know it has been ten times already!) only gets them exhausted.

Give them something they can use to learn by themselves. Make some fun out of the chore of learning numbers by giving a toddler these picturesque numeracy books so you can have them learn and laugh at the same time.

 

#1 Goodnight, Numbers by Danica McKellar

Goodnight, Numbers by Danica McKellar
My toddler loves Goodnight, Numbers by Danica McKeller. It helps him remember how to count and now he can count up to 100. I’m so impressed by how this book is laid out with the colourful illustrations. The colour palette is perfect to unwind at the end of the day and prepare for bed.

#2 Ten Little Pirates Board Book by Mike Brownlow

Ten Little Pirates Board Book by Mike Brownlow
My three-year-old son has most of the books in the 10 little series, and this is by far his favourite one. He has had it over a year now, and within the first few days, he learnt every word. The story is engaging, the book is educational, and it really builds the groundwork for a lifetime of counting. My son can now count all the way to 30, and I believe this book helped him in his counting journey.

#3 Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr Seuss

Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr Seuss
One cannot go wrong with Dr. Seuss. His books are full of zany humour and fun rhymes, and at the same time, they teach children many a thing. This particular book is great for introducing numeracy to your toddler. A lion, a dog and a tiger get up to all sorts of silly antics while trying to balance a number of apples of their head, and each one tries to out-do the other by balancing more apples. Your toddler is likely to giggle and laugh because of the fun illustrations while learning numbers, making reading this book a great experience.

#5 Goodnight, Numbers by Danica McKellar

Goodnight, Numbers by Danica McKellar
This beautifully illustrated New York Times bestseller makes for a calming bedtime story as the children in the text say goodnight to all their toys. By connecting counting and cardinality with items children see in their day-to-day, Goodnight, Numbers helps to establish and include mathematics in every part of a child’s world. There are also a wide variety of additional images children can count on each page, allowing for more autonomy and ownership of their learning and increased engagement with the text.

#6 1 2 3 Count with Me by Georgie Birkett

1 2 3 Count with Me by Georgie Birkett
Unlike most of the other counting books out there for wee ones, 1 2 3 Count with Me helps children discover numbers up to twenty (rather than just up to ten). As children trace the large, etched numbers in the text and lift the embedded flaps to discover a numeric surprise, they engage in a multi-sensory, hands-on learning experience that reinforces counting concepts. The book also comes with extension activities, writing prompts, and fun guessing games.
