As a maths teacher, I jumped at the chance to read this book that focuses on helping children learn maths skills. As I was reading it, it became apparent how easy it could be for a new parent to introduce maths to a child that is as young as a few hours old.
The book is set up by days, from 1 to 100. Each day gives a bit of research and is followed up with an activity for the parent to engage their child in. Because of the way the book is set up, it is most assuredly something that even the busiest of parents could find time to do. Each “day” takes no more than five minutes to read and similar time to implement.
While this book made me realize what I did not do for my own children, I loved the advice given. I have found my new “go to” present for expecting parents. This book is simple enough that even the parents who are most phobic about math could follow through. The research added gives a confidence to the parents in trying out each activity.
Many thanks to Net Galley for providing me with an ARC of this book.
