Give your child a head start in math!
Math is an important subject that is very useful in the academe and in life. Introduce math concepts to your toddler to prepare him/her for proper schooling. Using this wonderful and highly effective workbook, your tot should be able to understand basic math concepts and prepared to handle more complicated theories that will be introduced later on.
Children are using math skills early in life and throughout their daily routines and activities. This is great news as these skills are important for getting prepared for school. But early math doesn’t mean taking out the calculator during playtime. Even before they start school, most children develop an understanding of addition and subtraction through everyday interactions. For example, Thomas has two cars; Joseph wants one. After Thomas shares one, he sees that he has one car left (Bowman B. T. et al., 2001, p. 201). Other math skills are introduced by way of daily routines you share with your child—counting steps as you go up or down, for example. Informal activities like this one give children a jumpstart on the formal math instruction that starts in school.
What math knowledge will your child need later on in elementary school? Early mathematical concepts and skills that first-grade mathematics curriculum builds on include: (Bowman, B. T., Donovan, M. S., & Burns, M. S., (Eds.), 2001, 76).
- Understanding size, shape, and patterns
- Ability to count verbally (first forward, then backward)
- Recognizing numerals
- Identifying more and less of a quantity
- Understanding one-to-one correspondence (i.e., matching sets, or knowing which group has four and which has five)
Not only is there math exercises, but by fusing with coloring and drawing exercises, your toddler will be off to a great start with creativity that is the leading skill in the modern world. Whether they end up in computer programming, art, design, finance, management or anything else, skills that this book deliver are going to aid your toddler in developing what they need to succeed.

It took years for him to understand that he did have a gift. Though he traveled the globe in his youth, he still favors the lands of his imagination and wants nothing more than to share his visions with the world. He hopes his gift will allow readers to escape from reality, if only for a spell.
Following his education in technology, with a focus in writing and communication, he's spent his career working in the tech and travel industries. It allows for some creativity, but it doesn't compare to the freedom of creating new worlds and magical creatures.
A passionate home chef, J. Steven, can often be found in the kitchen with his agreeable husband, Tom, and their self-important Siamese, Lexi, who rules the house with an iron paw. When he isn't working or writing, J. Steven is never more than a step or thought away from adventure. Whether spending time in his enchanted garden, conjuring up new recipes or spending time with family and friends, he's always dreaming up new fiction based on over-the-top characterizations of the people he meets.
