Toddler Find of The Week: My Book of NumbersSelena Mills
A couple of months ago I picked up a KUMON activity book for Wyndham, thinking of his love and obsession with letters and numbers.
I got it on sale and wasn’t so sure he’d be into it right away, not for his lack of interest in numbers – but the focused precision he would need for all of the tracing.
Boy was I wrong. These books are genius and Wyndham LOVES this one…
My Book of Numbers (like all of Kumon’s other books) is designed specifically for little minds and hands. Wyndham was immediately smitten with the challenge of a new activity and accomplishing a new thing! Although the age recommendation (3-5) is what caused me to put it on the shelf instead of using it with him right away…I’ve learned to let my son be the judge of what he is and isn’t ready for.
When it comes to learning activities and learning through play anyways. So much of what a toddler does, or is not allowed to do is geared by us. It’s nice for them to have some control now and then. The pride with which he beamed as he tore through each activity page was adorable and so affirming. As clearly as the book stated, ‘if your child can read and write numbers up to 10 fairly well, then this book will build on that foundation’.
Except before this book, Wyndham wasn’t writing numbers all that much…he was reading them fine – but it’s the activities in this book that have guided him along.
