I Spy Numbers by Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick
Publisher: Scholastic USA
There is lots of visual interest in this book, with each photograph showing a numeral from 1 to 9 with lots of small objects around it. Each object relates to the numeral in some way, but children might have to look carefully at the photograph to work out how! This is an engaging context in which children can practise their counting and observation skills. This book
also provides some opportunities for lateral thinking and reasoning, e.g. how can B + C represent 5?
